IESM Rally held in Bhiwani

Dear Colleagues,
An ESM rally was held at Bhiwani (Haryana) today. It was attended by approximately 400 ESM including families. The anchor Veteran Hav Rajbir Singh, 8 JAT had organized it meticulously. Colonel Rakesh Chaturvedi, Capt Dhir Singh, Lt Kameshwar Pande and self had joined the event.
The speakers underscored the point of ESM having come into their own. It was brought out that in the earlier Pay Commissions the pleas by Service Chiefs even to include a defence forces representative were summarily rejected by the Government. In contrast now the Government has gone to the extent of accepting constituting a separate Pay Commission for defence forces. This has been possible only because of the pressure that has been built up by the IESM since April 2008.
The main achievement of the IESM has been to arouse the awareness among the veterans of the injustice they have been subjected to for a long time. But this is only the first step.
Best regards,
Lt Gen (Emeritus) Raj Kadyan, PVSM, AVSM, VSM
