In six years of leadership, too many defence issues were slowed resulting in drop in Indian defence preparedness. Every procurement item was either delayed or bureaucracy ignored its urgency like ammunition purchases, spares or placing orders for urgently needed items, excessive influence of arms pedlars, quarrel with the serving COAS, the most complicated RFI, test and approval process etc. In fact, he corrupted the whole system with layers and layers of bureaucracy with each layer looking forward to pocket some money. In fact he was a major embarrassment with his puritan views. In my opinion he should be asked in court of law to explain his conduct or misconduct. That six years of his stewardship will require another six to fix the problems he has built. He is silent these days. He should find an opportunity to explain everything.
