Dear Veterans and fellow members of IESM,
Maj Gen Satbir Singh needs to come out and respond to the call of several IESM members (including myself) who object to using the IESM name, platform and funds to launch "Fauji Janata Party".
This also calls for a GBM of IESM, since the bulk of IESM members are not privy to these e-mail exchanges.
In more detail, I voice my objection that IESM was formed as a non-political platform to advance the interests of ESM, and focused on achieving OROP. This basic premise will be violated by formation of "Fauji Janata Party" (FJP for short). I am horrified to read in these e-mails (I do not know how far it is fact) that FJP will align with a major political party, possibly BJP. Aligning with one or other political party will happen at sometime if not now, in any case ... a solution is to remove the word "Fauji" from the party name, as one Veteran in this exchange has suggested.
Accordingly I am Cc:-ing Maj Gen Satbir Singh herewith at <email@example.com>, and hope that it is his current e-mail ID, and will expect him to respond.
