1. A very noble idea of Lt Gen Raj Kadyan , PVSM,AVSM,VSM, to cash on and pay our tributes to the Kargil Martyrs, who sacrificed their life and recovered occupied territory with daring frontal attacks, knowing fully well it was suicidal but for the sake of mother land and high traditions of Indian Army they did this also, just because some one higher up was sleeping, and even then they made others scape goats for not informing them in time.
2. These are the very politicians and Big Babus ( Bureaucrats) who made Bee line to Pay Homage with each Coffin which came down in public to count the number of coffins utilised and calculate the profit they made out of it. Huge collections were made for Kargil martyrs Kins from the Public but they took the Major Share and only few Lakhs handed over to the families of heroes. Perhaps it was the time for elections and BJP. The case of OROP was existing then also , now claiming their right. "Better Late then Never"
3. Politicians only recognise Defence persons during National calamity or when in need of votes they can go to any extend but today they are not giving the legitimate dues to Ex-Servicemen but get themselves entitled for pension on being elected at the cost of Public Money and enjoy all the perks and privileges on cost of Tax payers which again are the defence personnel who pay to the maximum. Let the BJP take on income Tax free salary to the defence personnel's
4. Let all of us get together and convey message to these unreliable politicians that we care for our brethren who have made supreme sacrifice during Kargil. Let the heads of of the Ex-Servicemen come together and plan the event in Big way so that message goes down in the Parliament Corridor too. We should call the elected MP from the areas and convey the message in the similar way as they understand.
