New Delhi, Jun 1 (PTI) New Army Chief Gen Bikram Singh today said the happenings of the recent past should be left behind but made it clear that no controversy will brushed under the carpet. "Car is driven by seeing ahead through the windscreen and not through the rear view mirror. My issue is that whatever has happened should be left behind and drive looking from the windscreen in taking the army ahead," he told reporters after inspecting a guard of honour outside the Defence Ministry. He was asked about Defence Minister A K Antony's advice to forget the turbulence of the recent past. Asked to comment on the strain in civil-military relations in the recent past, the Army Chief said he will have a look at the problems and find a way ahead. "I have had five tenures in Army Headquarters and this will be the sixth one. We have had no problems in the past at least. Let me see what the problems are and we will take it forward. "I am certain that given the wisdom on both sides, given the commitment on both sides, I am sure that there will be no problems," he said. Sending a firm message to his 1.3 million force, Gen Singh said he will strive to maintain its "secular and apolitical" outlook. "Let us continue to be a secular and apolitical force and do our job the way it should be done," the 59-year-old General said a day after taking charge of the force from Gen V K Singh whose tenure was mired in controversies.
