EX-SERVICEMEN UNITY: IESM
1. You will be glad to know that IESM is spreading its wings across the country by the day. The aim is to go down to the level of each village throughout the country. We are getting tremendous response from every where. ESM in large mumbers are volunteering to be part of various committees to work for the welfare of Defence Personnel both serving and retired and for getting them their due Justice. The Govt, ill advised by the bureaucracy is continuing to demonstrate negative attitude while dealing with Defence Personnel. This attitude of the Govt is also clearly reflected in their not adhering to the various recent judgements of Supreme Court, High Courts and Armed Forces Tribunals (AFTs) which have gone in favour of the Defence Personnel. Two months have passed since. The All Party Parliamentary Standing Committee on Defence in written report on 07 May 2010 had strongly recommended the grant of OROP. The Govt by now should have been judicious enough to accept the recommendation of the Committee. The same has not been done so far.
2. I appeal to all ESM organizations throughout the country to associate themselves with the Indian Ex Servicemen Movement. Let us work out Common Minimum Programme (CMP) and action plan to get Justice to the Defence Forces. Let us give a strong push forward to Our Movement to make the Govt see reasons.
3. All state, district, city, tehsil, block convener are requested to constitute IESM committees and forward the details to the IESM HQ.

No matter how different we may seem, veterans have much more to unite us than to divide us.
