A day after the new Army Chief, Gen Manoj Mukund Naravane, said they were ready to act if they get orders from the political authority to take back Pakistan-occupied Kashmir, Congress leader in Lok Sabha Adhir Ranjan Chowdhury on Sunday asked the General to “talk less and work more”. Taking to Twitter, the opposition leader said, @ New Army Chief, Parliament already had adopted unanimous resolution on #POK in 1994, Government is at liberty to take action and may give direction (sic).
“If you are so inclined to take action on POK, I would suggest you to confabulate with CDS, and @PMOIndia.?Talk Less, Work More. Chowdhury’s reaction came a day after the Congress said it does not comment on the institution of the Army.

Parliament already had adopted unanimous resolution on #POK in 1994, Govt is at liberty to take action and may give direction. If you are so inclined to take action on POK, I would suggest you to confabulate with CDS, and @PMOIndia. Talk Less, Work More
When asked about the Army chief’s remarks on PoK, senior Congress spokesperson Anand Sharma said that the region was an integral part of India and both the Houses of Parliament had resolved so.
Chowdhury had earlier attacked Naravane’s predecessor Gen Bipan Rawat when the latter had remarked that leading people to arson and violence during anti Citizenship Amendment Act protests was not a mark of leadership.
At that time, the Congress leader had tweeted, Army Chief’s remark on CAA is highly objectionable, unethical and beyond his remit, he is appeared to be a BJP leader who is going to be promoted or rewarded as CDS. Rawat needs to be restrained to maintain the impartiality of our army.
