IESM thanks MP Rajeev Chandrasekhar Dated : 26 August 2010SALARY HIKE TO MPS AND ONE RANK ONE PENSION
Dear Shri Rajeev Chandrasekhar,
1. Thanks a million for your sincere and honest support to the cause of Defence Forces. We salute you for your conviction and decision to deny pay hike of MPs to yourself till such time One Rank One Pension demand is accepted. God Bless you. Please accept our gratitude and sincere appreciations for the bold and forthright letter you have written to the PM. We sincerely hope the PM also does soul searching within and the OROP is granted to the Defence Forces sooner than what Mr AK Antony the Hon’ble RM had stated in the Rajy Sabha yesterday.
2. We look forward to your continued support to our cause. We wish a few more MPs join you in projecting the cause of Defence Forces.
Maj Gen (Retd) Satbir Singh, SM
