WE SHOULD NOT ALLOW ANYONE TO DEGRADE OUR STATUS
"We should not allow anyone to degrade our status"
My Dear Ex-Servicemen,
The Sacrifice and Service we rendered to this Nation has become a subject of ridicule. In a petition to the Govt of Tamilnadu, the Civilian Employees Union of the Ex-Servicemen Directorate, has stated that the Ex-Services Officers appointed by the Govt. in the Directorate as the Assistant Directors, are drunkards, bribe takers (corrupt) and lack civility in dealing with the women employees ( sexual harassment). Therefore, the Ex-Servicemen do not deserve to be employed in such appointments, which should be reserved only to the Civilian Staff.
One cannot fathom such a vengeful attitude towards the Ex-Servicemen, who are employed in the Directorate, which is supposed to look after the Welfare of their own tribe. We shudder to even think about such an attitude from the Civilian Staff employed to look after our ESM. With this kind of hatred, what assistance the ESM can expect from the Civilian Staff, posted in these offices. The Govt should at the earliest reconsider the policy of appointing the Civilians in the ESM Welfare Directorates and Offices throughout the State.
We have already sent our views to the Secretary, ESM Dept. Those Veterans who are reading this message, especially the Office bearers of ESM Associations, must come down heavily on the derogatory remarks made by the Civilian Staff Union. We request all the ESM Associations to take up this as the prestige issue and embark on and/ or support a Rally being organised by us to condemn such nefarious activity. Our Phone Nos: 9894152959, 9894125019, 9786449036.
