Pay Them More. They Pay With Their Lives

published on April 16, 2008

To:  President of India

WE, the citizens of India, are shamed to know that our armed forces have to resort to pleadings of the sort we see today to seek parity of remuneration with government employees who neither perform functions as critcial to our existence as a nation, nor run the risks associated with it.

WE are embarrassed that matters so sensitive should become subjects of common parlance and open public debate showing us in a poor light around the world particularly in the context of our neighbours.

WE, the citizens of India, do petition you to use your position and influence to bear on the government the importance of putting the remuneration of all ranks of our armed forces – not on par, but above par as compared to the civil services.

To this end, we the below signed representing the common will of the citizens of India, are willing to pay a cess if necessary to create the conditions for enhancing the remunerative discharge to our armed forces with immediate effect.

WE trust that yourself, being Commander-in-Chief of our forces, will take this up as it should have been, without delay or deviation.
