          I am not satisfied with the 7th CPC but also have no other choice instead of accepting this being a comman man. Pre 15 Aug 1947 Britishers ruled over us and post 15 Aug 1947 these corrupted politicians, businessman and local police, lower judiciery is ruling over us.

            it is sad to inform that the brave soldiers who sacrifies their lives for the nation are provided loans from the banks on market intrest rates and the MPs and MLAs who are sitting in ACs and doing politics on each and every matter just to get into the power by any means are provided the loans at 0% intrest. i think PM should explain this in his speech "Man ki Baat".

              this pay commission is a real example of discrimination between officers and other ranks of army because :- (a) Other ranks faces more hardship as they work on ground under inclement weather conditions, hard terrain etc whereas officers are provided with higher MSP inspite of the fact that they are also provided with better facilities in every locations of the army weather it is peace, high alude, glacier, field or counter insurgency or in any other operations. (b) it is tough to accept that MNS and officers will get more MSP while sitting in ACs and PBORs will get less MSP while working on ground (.) discrimination also reflects in increase of pay i.e, only 2.57 % for PBORs and 2.67 % for officers. this will only increase the gap of ries between the higher cl and lower cl. (c) All this leads to set a mindset in Other ranks that not only the govt but officials also dont want that their subordinates get higher pay which in turn affects the morale and working efficiency of an soldier (d) Due to this a social economic factor is also connected i.e, increase of gap between the higher cl and lower cl across the country which is neither good for economic health because the maximum demand in the market to accelerate the economy will only be generated by only those people who are still that much capable to afford bed items/own houses/motor cars (e) this also leads to angerness among the soldiers and dishonesty towards their superiors and the BJP led govt which is already on fire from the opposition that they are working only for rich and higher cl of the society and and the country (f) it reduces the belief that PM inspite of a person of great experience and from the poor family who understands the feelings of lower middle cl and poor peoples and who knows that this will also prove to be a point of discussion in next election for the families of lower middle cl, poors and soldiers also to not to vote for the man who can not understand us (.)
