It has become a fashion in India to condemn Army: VP

NEW DELHI: The security forces should not be "demoralised" by the political leadership and the media of the country, Vice President Venkaiah Naidu <link> on Monday said, stressing that one should see their "difficult working conditions" before saying anything "adverse", PTI has reported.

Speaking at a CRPF <link> event here, Naidu said "dissent is agreeable but disintegration can never be acceptable at all" in the country, adding that he had "no qualms in saying that human rights is for humans and not for demons (maanav adhikar maanvaon ke liye hotey hain, daanavon ke liye nahi)".

"People who write articles from Delhi, the leaders who speak negatively about our forces they should understand the adverse conditions and climate that these (security forces) people are operating in," Naidu said at the 'Valour Day' event of the Central Reserve Police Force <link> (CRPF).

"That (the difficult working conditions of the forces)", the Vice President said, has to be kept in mind before saying or doing anything.

"It has become a fashion for some people that without knowing the reality of the situation they condemn (the forces)," Naidu said.
