NON IMPLEMENTATION OF
RELAY HUNGER STRIKE AT JANTAR MANTAR NEW DELHI AND FUTURE
COURSE OF ACTION
1.Today is the 16th Day of the Relay Hunger Strike
at Jantar Mantar New Delhi and at more than 50 cities across the country by the
Ex-servicemen in protest for Non Implementation of OROP which had been
sanctioned since 17th Feb 2014.
2.The Govts of the day, for the past 67 years have
systematically downgraded and degraded Military in their status, Pay &
Allowances and pensions.
soldier protects what? Guards whom? A piece of terrain! Barren, inhospitable,
worthless? No! for the love of his
country and countrymen, his motherland he protects, her citizens he guards, his KARMA he performs, with honour and pride, for your tomorrow he sacrifices his today.”
3.The Civil Military relations are at its “NADIR”! Why such a state has arisen? It is,
primarily due the fact that the
Political System in the Country for the
past 67 years have allowed the
Control of Military, instead of being under the elected representative ie The
Parliament & the Govt of the Day, has schemingly
and through machination, put under the “Bureaucracy”
4. That the soldiers
have to start a Protest Movement & sit on Hunger Strike to get their due Justice
is the “Bad Luck of Nation”.
“JIS DESH KE SAINIK SARHKON PAR,
DESH KA DURBHAGYA HAI”
5.We at the United
Front of Ex Servicemen, beseech the conscience of the
Nation and ask the countrymen to join
and demand from the Govt, due “Respect and Justice For the Soldiers”. One Rank One Pension as per the approved
definition must be immediately; implemented without any dilution.
6.ESM & ESM Organizations are requested to sit on Hunger
Strike at their respective locations and also send a batch of 11 ESM to take

7.Besides the Relay Hunger Strike, we have given the call to
Bycott all Govt functions. Also, we will
go to the States going in for elections to inform the people to elect those who
