Ex-servicemen protest for ‘One Rank One Pension’
Hundreds of ex-servicemen today staged a protest at office of District Magistrate demanding the implementation of ‘One Rank One Pension’ scheme and handed over a memorandum in the name of President and Prime Minister of India.
President of ex-servicemen welfare samiti BC Bansal said that PM Narendra Modi had promised implemention of the scheme during his election campaign.
BJP government has now forgotten its promise made to the ex-servicemen after coming to power, he said.
Brigadier (retired) VS Chaudhary said that BJP has ditched the retired soldiers and in the memorandum demanded for the establishment of a ‘National Soldier Commission’ to look after the welfare and resolve the grievances of retired soldiers.
