Subject: TIMES NOW TV DEBATE ON MP'S SALARY
Dr Abhiskek Singhvi,
We are delighted to hear your response to issues pertaining to DEFENCE FORCES ie,Denial of Rank pay while computing PENSION ,matter upheld by SUPREAME COURT & Armed Forces Tribunal,Disability Pension matter brought out by Capt Sidhu,again the MOD mandarins are trying to delay/deny/defy Supreme court decision.
ONE RANK ONE PENSION,(OROP) or SAME PENSION FOR SAME RANK with equal period of service,an highly emotive issue with defence fraternity, (serving, retired and family pensioners), this matter had been STRONGLY recommended by Parliamentary consultative Committee headed by a congress MP,included in PRESIDENT'S,(our SUPREAME COMMANDER) address to Parliament,and almost all political parties including Congress President Madam SONIA GANDHI who backed same in one of her rally at CHANDIGARH.
Lack sensitivity on above issues by bureaucracy on above matter is adversely affecting MORALE fibre of defence personnel particularly retired ones who are the one who send their children/kin to defend NATIONS borders, as of now around 30,000 LEADERS (Officers) are deficient.
A fresh look by legal luminary like you will be of great help.In case any inputs are required by you same would be made available or give time to our representatives to update/ brief you.
We await your response please.
