IESM: Rally on 22 Aug 2010- Supreme Commander goading the Government to ensure Justice for the Veterans

Dear Colleagues,
As planned, an Ex Servicemen rally was held at Jantar Mantar, New Delhi today. 2,000 ESM along with some 100 Families from different parts of India participated. All the speakers that took the mike – and there were many – expressed gratitude for the IESM for getting them the pension enhancement. They expressed total solidarity and vowed to continue the struggle till we get justice. The firm resolves to continue the fight and a unanimous call for unity for ESM across the country, was indeed heart-warming.
After the rally, 10 of us went to the Rashtrapati Bhawan to hand over the memorandum signed in blood by 1, 25,000 ESM, as well as 5,000 medals to the President. Since the President did not receive the medals in person, these were brought back as planned. The memorandum was however, submitted. The staff member that represented the Supreme Commander conveyed the latter’s concern at our having to struggle for justice and assured us that the President is regularly projecting our case to the government.
Best regards,
Lt Gen (Emeritus) Raj Kadyan, PVSM, AVSM, VSM
Chairman IESM
