After Modi's address to ex-servicemen, Antony assures 'favourable news' on rank-pay issue
HEADLINES TODAY BUREAU | HEADLINES TODAY | NEW, SEPTEMBER 17, 2013 | UPDATED 19:24 IST



It seems to be the Narendra Modi effect on Defence Minister A.K. Antony as he called up the Indian Air Force (IAF) chief recently and assured some good news for ex-servicemen's welfare, sources told Headlines Today.

Headlines Today has learnt that Antony personally called up Air Chief Marshal N.A.K. Browne earlier this week, promising him "favourable news" on rank pay issue, which has been hanging fire for more than two decades.

Headlines Today dug up a letter by the attorney general to Antony recommending that the ministry of defence (MoD) grant the long standing demand of rank pay.

Modi had addressed a huge rally of ex-servicemen in Haryana's Rewari town on September 15 and attacked the Centre for its weak policies.

@ SUNNY
Correction:

Telephonic talk under reference, between COSC & RM, seems to have taken place a couple of days before 15.9.13, when Mr Modi addressed the rally in Rewari.

In this connection, please see my comments dated 15.9.13 on Blog "IV CPC Rank Pay Case-.."

Not all RDOA members would have identical political affiliations.

So far, tha apolitical nature if this forum has served the Rank Pay litigation cause fairly well.

Besides, there are other fora for espousing political issues of all hues and colorations.

So far, the rank pay matter has remained the central theme of this blog. It is upto RDOA, of course, to begin to include matters of political nature, but it might muddy the waters for some of the faithful followers of the blog who might wish for the continuation of a apolitical discourse.

Criticising the harmful policies towards veteran Officers of any government, regardless of it's political constitution, is another matter, of course.
