On We The People, we discuss the irony of this year's Kargil Vijay Diwas. While we honour our war heroes today, they have spent this day protesting. Their long-standing demand of One Rank One Pension is yet to be implemented. Over 80 per cent appeals filed by Defence Ministry in the Supreme Court are against our own disabled soldiers. Even as we honour our soldiers today, we ask: Have they been defeated by the system? Why does our government make them run from pillar to post for a disability pension as low as Rs 155? Has One Rank One Pension for defence personnel become a forgotten promise? When will 'acche din' come for our soldiers?
