Guwahati: Henderson’s confidential report will still not be made public.

Defense Minister Rajnath Singh has made this clear. Actually, the demand

to make this report public was made by BJP MP Tapir Gav. Mr. Gav has

demanded in the Lok Sabha to show in Parliament the Henderson-Bhagat

report, which was prepared after India’s war with China in 1962 but was not

tabled. Arunachal Pradesh MP Tapir Gao “talked about Henderson Brooks

and the Brigade, in 58 years.” MP Tapir Gao said in a press conference in

Guwahati today that it has not yet been made public what the hell is in this

Henderson’s confidential report. People believe that this report raises many

questions on the then Prime Minister Jawaharlal Nehru. In fact an inquiry

committee was formed to find out the reasons for India’s defeat in 1962. It

was formed by the then Prime Minister Jawaharlal Nehru himself. The

investigation was entrusted to Lieutenant General Henderson Brooks and

Brig PS Bhagat.

Henderson’s confidential report is much discussed but unknown

Lieutenant General Anderson was an Anglo Indian. When India became

independent, he served the Indian Army after the British India Army. He

retired in 1964. He retired to Australia after retirement. He died there in

1997 at the age of 87. At the same time, PS Bhagat fought many wars on

behalf of the Indian Army. He rose to the rank of Lieutenant General in the

Indian Army. He died in Kolkata at the age of 56. Both of them were capable

officers. BJP MP Tapir Gav on Wednesday demanded in the Lok Sabha that

the Henderson-Bhagat report in the context of the 1962 India-China war

should be laid on the table of the Parliament and made public. The report of

Brooks and Brigadier PS Bhagat is a confidential document.

Many unconfirmed points discussed about this

Raising the subject in the Zero Hour in the lower house, Gav said that the

1962 Indo-China war has been 58 years but the report has not yet been

made public. Why was it not kept in the house? The BJP MP said that it

should be put in the Parliament so that the coming generations can see it

and it will be in the national interest. On the other hand, Defense Minister

Rajnath Singh said that releasing it is in the national interest Is not.

Committee was formed to investigate the reasons for the severe defeat from

China. The Indian Army set up a two-member commission headed by the

then Lieutenant General Henderson Brooks after a bitter defeat to China.

Defense Minister Rajnath Singh said, ‘The Henderson’s confidential report

is a highly confidential document. It is not in the interest of the country to

make it partial or complete or any part of it public. He admitted that the

government was aware of the publication in the media of some news reports

claiming to have exposed portions of this report. Be aware that an

Australian journalist claimed to have leaked portions of the Henderson

report in March this year. In his book on the 1962 Indo-China war, the

Australian journalist claimed that the then government policy of deploying

troops on the high mountains created a situation of fighting.
