Ex-servicemen support service chiefs over pay commission

Jalandhar, September 13

The Indian Ex-servicemen movement (IESM) convener Lt Col Balbir Singh today said that this was the first time in the history of Indian Army that the incumbent service chiefs have declined to accept the 7th pay commission which projected lowest pay for the armed forces. 
“The entire community of the IESM stands by our chiefs and supports them in getting our respect and honour which is being lowered in status and pay. It is high time that the government should understand our well deserved demands before it is too late,” said Col Balbir. He said tby bringing unrest in armed forces; the government was compromising on the security of the nation. 

He said the government should restore our status and bring pay and parity with other Class A services. He also said that the service chiefs should not bow down to the political pressure imposed by Union Defence Minister Manohar Parrikar who had asked them to accept it with immediate effect. —TNS
