    Eastern army commander Lt. General Dalbir Singh Suhag, tipped to take over from General Bikram Singh as the next Army Chief in August 2014, is all set to move to New Delhi as the next vice-chief.

    Sticking to the norm of getting the "chief-in-line" accustomed with South Block, the government has cleared his appointment to replace Lt. General S.K. Singh, who is retiring.

    Lt. General Dalbir Singh had got embroiled in a controversy when the previous Army Chief General V.K. Singh had imposed a discipline and vigilance promotion ban which was set aside, paving the way for his appointment as the eastern army commander.

    Along with Suhag, eastern air command chief Air Marshal R.K. Sharma will also move to New Delhi as the new IAF vice-chief.

    Sharma will replace Air Marshal Arup Raha who will take over as the next Chief of Air Staff on December 31.

    The Line of Succession as pre decided by Gen J J SIngh and his
    crony Deepak Kapoor FINALLY ends with Gen Suhag

    After Gen Suhag the next General will be selected purely on merit

    Some deserving Major Generals were deliberately shunted out
    to make way for General Suhag

    Sir, could you please give us some insight into his persona?

    Is he also politically inclined (towing the GoI's line) like our current COAS? Or a hard-spined person like Gen. V.K. Singh?

    Is he a modernizer? Is he a reformer? etc. etc.

    I am not happy with Gen BS for his lack of action during Chinese intrusions in DBO and the mini Kargil like situation in J & K. Even the IAF Activated their missile batteries and fired 2 OSA SAM Shots in the Eastern Sector to signal their readiness to join any Battle, but the army was Silent and Unmoved.

    Ex-COAS Gen VK Singh has mentioned about Dalbir Singh Suhag in his biography (which I had recently read) and why he was not happy with Suhag's actions .

    Even this came out as a news...
