As a next level step to reach the voice of the deprived soldiers, some activities have been planned by the veterans association . Details of the programme which has been published by Chairman of United Front of Veterans as details below :-
“Since 2013, JCOs/NCOs/ex-servicemen have been protesting under the banner of Voice of Ex-Servicemen and United Front against their economic demands and colonial discrimination, in Jantar Mantar, Ramlila Maidan, Delhi and other parts of the country. But Under the influence of military and civil bureaucracy, the government is not only ignoring our demands but also does not want to talk. Because of this, the ex-servicemen are feeling humiliated and the government’s attitude has made them second class citizens.
Even after huge demonstrations at Jantar Mantar on 12 March, Ramlila Maidan on 6 August and Rewari on 17 September, the government is not ready for talks.
It was decided in the meeting that on 04 November 2023, thousands of ex-servicemen will march from Chhotu Ram Gham, Sapla (Haryana) to the Prime Minister’s residence. They will rest at Bahadurgarh for the night. On 05 November 2023, they will pay homage at the Martyr Memorial Bahadurgarh. After this, the padyatra will be started which will reach Paharganj via Mundka, Nangloi, Punjabi Bagh, Karol Bagh on that day.
The next day on 06 November 2023, starting the padyatra from Paharganj, they will reach the National War Memorial India Gate and pay tribute to the immortal martyrs of the country, after that thousands of ex-servicemen of the country will walk on foot to the Prime Minister’s residence to meet the Prime Minister. Will reach by marching!
On10th October 2023 the United Front of exservicemen has applied in writing to meet the Prime Minister of India. 28 lakh ex-servicemen, Virnari, martyr families and their 2 crore families were ready for the march to the country’s capital New Delhi PM House.
