This report was made on the India-China war
Arunachal MP Tapir gao demanded for this
Many unconfirmed notes about the report
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.
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.
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.
