There are many problems in the army as well but these things never come out. It is only when a soldier dies that our country makes a scene out of it. They do not care about what that soldiers family goes through,” says Mishra who is also a CPI (ML) leader.”Above 100 jawans commit suicide in a year. According to an estimate, 30-40 people want to kill themselves but somehow they get saved. The death due to terror activities is lesser than suicides. At army hospital, a sizeable number of jawans are admitted in psycho wards. All these are the problems that are never discussed,” he added.Jawaharlal Nehru University is caught in a row over an event in the campus to commemorate the hanging of Parliament attack convict Afzal Guru, where “anti-national” slogans were allegedly raised.
