Dear Colleagues,
The NDTV programme ‘We the People’ that was aired Sep 12, 2010 has attracted wide comments. These include both compliments and criticism. This is how it should be and these are all welcome. The participants in such programmes invariably come away somewhat dissatisfied at what they could not convey or rebut mostly due to lack of time. However, without going into details of individual comments, suffice it to say that in sum the programme was a great positive for OROP. The issue today has countrywide recognition and, as was evident from the reactions of the participants, even support. The public supports OROP, the courts are speaking of it favourably and the MsP, so ably provided the lead by Rajiv Chandrasekhar, are likely to rally behind the demand. None of us has a doubt that despite such support the government is likely to keep dithering as they are wont (accustomed) to do. We have to keep the heat on.
I spoke to Brig KP Singhdeo Sep 13 and told him of the falsehoods stated by Capt Praveen Davar. The Brig had not watched the programme and was not even aware of what Davar had said. When informed, he clearly stated that these are Davar’s individual views and not of the Party. I advised him to apprise the Party hierarchy that viewers are likely to construe these as official stand of the Party.
Best regards,
Lt Gen (Emeritus) Raj Kadyan, PVSM, AVSM, VSM
Chairman IESM
