Dear Gen Raj Kadyan,
First time in the history of defence services, veterans have created record under your leadership by fighting for lost status and Izzat. Your sacrifice and dedicated efforts with your team, has only made it possible to sort out certain major anomalies with the Govt. Otherwise it was very difficult to get such pay hike for Lt Cols/Cdr(IN) /Wing Cdr(IAF), restoration of 70% pensionary weightage for PBOR, separate pay commission for defence services etc. Lot to achieve more from the Govt in near future also for welfare of defence services so keep it up sir, we all are with you.
Since Raksha Mantri’s letter to Chairman IESM, merely shows that Govt is fully aware of IESM activities so veterans genuine demands for justice can’t be ignored and justice can’t be denied by the Govt for the remaining anomalies. (BHAGWAN KE GHAR MAIN DAIR HAI PAR ANDHAR NAHI)
No doubt leading role played by our three chiefs and other senior veterans is highly admirable yet major credit goes to you, your team and all veterans who volunteered for fast unto death and relay fast which is going on with full josh and hosh despite cold climate so we all ESM are indeed proud of you all.
Your interaction with TV/Media was always so excellent, which made lot of difference on Govt to listen genuine demands for justice of veterans and that impact in future also will remain to over come other remaining anomalies as justice can’t be denied.
We indeed owe deep debt of gratitude for taking extra initiative and the dedicated efforts put in for successful persuading and progressing the pending issues of 6 CPC with highest authorities and doing needful for the achievements of the results for the welfare of veterans.
All ESM of Dehra Doon Valley send best wishes for the New Year to all the members of the Core Group & the Veterans who are carrying on with the Protest Relay Fast despite the cold season. We have full faith that IESM will always be successful in achieving the Mission to deliver the goods and bring many laurels in near future also and progress by leaps and bound.
May Almighty God bless all of us.
