Ex-servicemen demand Commission

NEW DELHI: Rashtriya Sainik Morcha, an organisation of former officers and personnel of the armed forces, has demanded among other things constitution of an Ex-Servicemen Commission, one rank-one pension and equal facilities to the families of all martyred soldiers.

Pension

The Morcha, at its recent second national convention here, also demanded pension to all personnel who have completed their military training, establishment of `Shaheed Sthal' (Martyrs Place) in all districts by ex-service personnel and that soldiers should not be dismissed on the basis of Red Ink Entry.

Districts

In his address, Morcha president Col Tejendra Pal Tyagi, Vir Chakra, demanded that community centres in all districts be given to ex-servicemen for operation and maintenance and asserted that the ``difference can be seen in three months''.

Col Tyagi was re-elected president for the second term at the convention where two dozen families of martyred soldiers were felicitated, a Morcha release said.

Patriotic activities

Chief Guest Adjutant General Lt Gen A S Jamal lauded the patriotic activities of the organisation and released a souvenir on the occasion while former Punjab Governor Lt Gen B K N Chhibber exhorted all smaller organisations of ex-servicemen to come under one banner at the national level. PTI
