OROP : AN APPEAL/MESSAGE OF UFESM/IESM TO ALL VETERANS
UFESM/IESM is surprised at the suggestion/advise flowing out of those ESM who had never participated in agitation for OROP. Most of the ESM have not understood the meaning of this unilateral declaration of OROP. Please read it carefully and you will understand that this is not OROP but is only small increase of few hundred Rupees for all ranks. If you all wish to take it you are all welcome. In any case this money will come to your bank asap the Govt letter is issued. The Govt letter could be issued within a month as Govt is in a hurry to complete the task and claim fulfillment of promise. Moreover there is a doubt that with five yr clause of pension equalization Armed Forces personnel/ESM may not be given 7CPC recommendation till five yrs. Our bureaucrats can go to any sadistic limits to teach AFP/ESM lessons of taking up cudgel against them.
Once a Govt letter is issued, there will be no further hearing on it. You are all aware that there are 38 anomalies pending on 6 CPC but these have not been solved in last 10 yrs as bureaucrats do no want to give you anything. Same will be the fate to any letters written to Govt after issuance of GL.
Now Gentlemen it is your choice if you are happy with the doles given by the bureaucrats, please sit at home and be happy with bread crumbs thrown at you. And if you wish to fight this injustice then please pack your bags and come to JM. We will make arrangement for your stay in Gurudwaras. This is your chance of redeeming your honor.
Some ESM are quick to point fingers at their comrades who wish to fight for redeeming their honor and are regularly attending agitation at JM and are so concerned about the expenditure at JM for the agitation that they are willingly contributing to offset the exp. Finger pointing ESM are the ones who always towed the Government line and never took up fight for OROP. These are the guys who got funds from Govt for not taking up your cases. These are the guys who are now pointing fingers at their comrades who are willingly supporting the agitation. Some of them are going to the bizarre extent to even to organize DHANDYAVAD rallies in honor of PM for this unilateral declaration of OROP by the Govt.
UFESM/IESM has decided to fight till end for this unjustified declaration of OROP by the Govt under influence of bureaucrats. We are aware of last moment addition of VRS clause in the declaration. This word was added at 1135 PM by bureaucrats with a view to remove 60% of veterans (ORs, JCOs and officers) out of OROP. Even RM and three chiefs were surprised about it. We are not accepting it if some veterans wish to accept, it is their choice. UFESM/IESM will fight it in the courts if required. There is no term like VRS in services as VRS is given along with golden handshake to surplus manpower to prune the workforce.
Gentlemen I feel sorry about those ESM who are pointing fingers about contribution being given at JM. Please be rest assured that UFESM/IESM has not forced any veteran to contribute funds for agitation at JM. All veterans are contributing out of their choice and free will. Every contribution is properly accounted and account statement will be put up for approval of environment on completion of our fight for OROP.
UFESM/IESM fail to understand the psyche of some veterans who do not wish to put up a fight for OROP.
Pardon my strongly worded mail.
UFESM/IESM request all veterans to leave inhibitions and join us in putting up a well planned and coordinated fight against evil designs of bureaucrats
