1. We the members of the Defence Family present at JANTAR MANTAR pleaded with and persuaded Mrs Sudesh Goyat, Hav Major Singh and Hav Mahender not to sit on FUD but they remained determined. All three expressed anguish at the apathetic attitude of present Government towards all the members of Defence Fraternity and did not relent to our requests.
2. It is sad that the Government continues to adopt a negative attitude to the most genuine demand of Actual OROP. It is indeed a pity that The One-Man Judicial Committee report has neither been made public nor processed even after its submission on 26 Oct 2016.
3. For Those Who May be Having any Doubts: No one is playing politics within our own Defence Family. You are all senior offrs capable of Objective Analysis and we expect the same from you. You need to get to reality. It is 581 days and the Government has not moved a bit towards granting us the Actual OROP. Not only this, the Government has carried through the wrong OROP to 7th CPC. How can one say that it will get corrected with 7th CPC?
There are 36 Anomalies of 7th CPC pointed out by the three Services Chiefs. The Government continues to ignore our rightful dues and at every opportunity says that they have given OROP.
4. Friends, LET ME CLARIFY ONCE AGAIN THAT I OR ANY OTHER MEMBER OF General Body UFESM/IESM HAS NOT AND WILL NOT JOIN ANY POLITICAL PARTY TILL THE PROTEST MOVEMENT IS ON. LIKE 2014 Lok Sabha ELECTIONS, FOR OROP, WE WILL USE THE UNITED POWER OF VOTES IN ALL FUTURE ELECTIONS.
5. I appeal to all members of the Defence Fraternity to visit JANTAR MANTAR REGULARLY TO EXPRESS YOUR SUPPORT AND SOLIDARITY TO THE CAUSE OF SOLDIERS.
WE ARE WORKING RELENTLESSLY FOR 6.45 lakh DEFENCE WIDOWS, 24 lakh ESM AND 15 lakh SERVING PERSONNEL. TODAY'S SERVING IS TOMORROW'S VETERAN.
We pray for the well being of the THREE Brave Hearts ON Fast Unto Death for the sake of Defence Fraternity.
