Times Now debate on 20 Aug 2010: MPs Salaries and Veterans Pension

Dear all,
This TV Debate was of special interest to us veterans.
Manu Singhvi Congress stated that he was not aware of any of the cases where verdicts were given by the Supreme Court in favour of the Armed Forces and on which the govt had appealed for review instead of graciously accepting the same. He agreed on TV that he would personally look into each of these and take them up to have them speedily resolved.

I suggest a delegation of IESM's senior diginitaries along with our legal experts and accompaqning documents call on him within the next week along with a representative of 'TIMES NOW' and on camera request him to sort this out.
God bless and good luck.

Dear Brig. Kamboj,
I am neither shocked nor surprised, that, our (Hon?) President did not meet the delegation today. We do not elect our Presidents but have a weird way putting them in the tax payer funded Presidential Palace and my memory is very strong how she got there. I did not have slightest doubt that she would not meet the delegation. The country's power-brokers and its stakeholders are mostly sycophants and they have no principles, values and respect for the Armed forces who have been protecting the country day and night relentlessly since 15th August 1947.

This is not the first time such efforts have failed as such is the attitude of the supreme commander. We may have to change our strategy. I am sure that there are so many generals and senior officers surely they will find a new strategy as they did in the battlefields. Our aim must be "we must not stop until we win this
legitimate struggle".

I am slightly taken aback, that, it is the same govt so shameless and have the cheek to ask the Army to help in the CWG preparations completely free when the same lot is responsible for plundering thousands of crores tax and rate payers money in CWG projects. How shameless they are? The job of the Army is to protect the country against any foreign aggression and not to be used as and when required for odd civilian jobs. In the west where Armed forces are
well valued, respected and are totally bar from any such odd use even during emergency needs. Our Army need to take a stand and just need to do that.
With warm regards,

A very lively debate which I also saw on Times Now TV.The Govt (Congress) was put to shame to deny legitimate salaries to the Armed Forces even after the Supreme Court has approved the cases.But `netas & babus` have appealed again for a review by the SC.How shameless can the Govt be,especially the `clueless` PM, the `lost` RM & the `wily` FM. Only God can save this Nation - look at the `mess` of the CWG - corruption everywhere. Can the PM/ FM/ UPA Chairperson/ Congress feign ignorance- Congress is synonmous with corruption !!!
