11 Dec : ESM 13% Job Quota in Pb has come down to 1.5% as on today and it needs to be revived. Pb Govt has released 2000 job vacancies to make up Pb Police shortage after Mumbai terror attack. We only pray that maximum Ex-Servicemen may kindly be resettled, than to adjust own kith & kin’s. ESM are the most suitable & highly trained unemployed manpower to take on terrorism. Hardly any ESM was resettled in back log quota during last Police & other enrolments. Therefore, this is the good opportunity for Pb Govt to repay for its veteran’s sacrifices.
2. Avoid Demoralising Armed Forces. Some people misuse their position & drive pleasure in undermining & demoralising Forces just for hack of it, which is a very dangerous & anti national attitude. Defence is the only most dedicated, capable & trusted Force which can guarantee public safety & security that too at least cost and without corruption. Armed Forces are highly responsible & accountable dept and all defaulters are punished invariably come what may, unlike other depts. Therefore, we make a public appeal to boost up morale of Forces & its commanders.
3. Federal Intelligence Agency is need of the day & rightly proposed by the Govt, to come up soon for effective National security. This system will have better centralized command, control and dissemination of collective informations & intelligence to all needy. All intelligence Agencies may be brought under one integrated network control. We feel that Defence Forces must be made part of it, since ultimate security rests on their shoulders every time. Therefore, professionalism & expertise of Armed Forces and services of the most experienced Ex-Servicemen must be utilized. At the same time please ensure to avoid ISI agent type people’s entry in it.
4. ESM Contributory Health Scheme (ECHS). It is very encouraging news that Govt is actively considering to expand ECHS net work in a big way. In which 196 new ECHS Polyclinics are being sanctioned and one of them would be set up at Mohali.
5. One Rank One Pension (OROP) is 22 yr’s old, most legitimate but pending demand is also under considerations by the Govt. Since most of the Govt servants are already getting OROP. We are also hopeful of getting it soon
