Respected Veteran Col Venugopal,Jai Hind.1. I see that you are pre 1960 commissioned and are 80+ years of age. I am glad that as Col you are drawing Rs. One lakh as Pension incl 20% of Basic Pension + DA entitled to Pensioners who are between 80-85 years. It is indeed nice to hear from a Pensioner that he is happy with the Pension he is receiving. And, why not? Rs. One lakh is not a small amount. But have you ever thought of Sepoys who retire after 15-16 years service, who are in receipt of a meager pension; and, especially those who retired prior to 1 Jan 2006? If you say, NO; I wish to ask you: why not? And, what have you done to ameliorate their suffering?2. Have you ever taken part in any of the rallies org by IESM and other ESM Org appealing to the Govt for grant of OROP? If yes, where & when? If not, why not? You may say that you are 80+ years. That does not matter. At ESM rallies org at Bangalore, officers of 80+ years age, of the rank of Lt Gen and Air Mshl & Admirals have taken part standing shoulder to shoulder with retired JCOs, NCOs & OR, a large number of them 80+years of age. And, what have you done? Nothing. Respected Veteran Col Venugopal, you have done nothing.3. It is on receipt of an email from Maj Gen Satbir Singh, (presently, Chairman IESM) in the first week of April 2008, that, we at Bangalore organized the first ESM Rally on 28 April 2008; followed by a number of Rallies incl return of Medals, signing of Petition in Blood, Fast for Justice, etc. It is on account of ESM Rallies and Fast for Justice org at numerous places in the North, South, East & West that OROP became a reality. And not on account of Veterans like you. And your Basic pension having gone up from Rs.26,050/- to Rs. 36,130/- on account of grant of OROP, without doing anything towards the cause, you now have the temerity to lecture others quoting a Tamil poem.4. Sir, you are a selfish Veteran; for people like you are interested in only looking after their interest; and couldn't care less about retired JCOs & OR, the under-privileged lot. Sir, you having done nothing for grant of OROP, the least you can do is sit tight; and, stop farting.Regards,Col RajanBangalore, 9449043770
