Subject: Law needed to demonstrate Nation’s commitment to retired Armed Forces Personnnel, says Rajeev Chandrasekhar, MP
India must pass a law that ensures better treatment of the Retired Armed Forces Personnel and their families, and must emulate UK Government’s decision to convert its existing military covenant– an agreement under which the state pledges a duty of care towards its military personnel in return for the sacrifices that they make- into a law. In a letter written to the Prime Minister Mr. Manmohan Singh and Defence Minister Mr AK Antony, Mr Rajeev Chandrasekhar, Member of Parliament urged them to pass UK-like law for India and demonstrate nation’s commitment to the honour and bravery of our retired Armed Forces Personnel and their families.
