'What about the army officers who stand for long hours everyday to protect our borders,' asked a man to an army officer in an ATM queue.

(Source: File Photo)

Queues in front of banks and ATMs are far from receding even three weeks after the government announced the move to demonetise old Rs 500, Rs 1000 currency notes. There are rampant public complaints about the mismanaged implementation of demonetisation. Meanwhile, a common remark that a lot of people are increasingly using is how our soldiers in the army stand for long hours everyday to protect the borders, while we make a deal of standing for a little longer in queues. From what it seems, somebody happened to say that to another person in an ATM queue, but little did he know that he was talking to an army veteran himself!

Darshan Dhillon, who served in the army for 20 years and was there to withdraw his pension, gave it right back to the man, as he mentioned in a Facebook post.

This was his reply.

“I was standing in long ATM Q and getting irritated on mismanagement on a good issue. The fellow Modi bhakt behind gave me a quick reaction by saying, why are you perturbed think about about army persons standing 20 hrs in day on border.
My curt reply removed his deshbhagti with a jolt when I told him that I did that on border for 20 years and standing here to withdraw my pension on that account. He should show his deshbhagti in getting us actual OROP and CPC from Modi ji rather than issuing certificates in ATM lines.
Fauji Baba”

This is his Facebook post.

    Salut you sir u have given 20yeras to Army. But sir ji I want to correct you, here you are doing politics not desh bhakti.. People like u never ask Congress who ruled 60 years in the country for your demand one rank one pension... But who did it for you, u questioning him... And ask many solider who on line of control fighting for nation, what their view on demonetisation they are happy. Please correct your point modi government done lots of thing for you. And still working on to implement OROP to make everyone happy in army. But u dont appreciate on it and will not going to write about it on your facebook wall.

        The country's armed forces backed central government decision about demonetisation.The armed force itself wants no corruption illegal business activities money laundering counterfeit money tax avoidance financing terrorist organisation the list goes on corrupt practices.It fully supports implemention of new laws.Salute the armed force!

            Mr Dhillon, everyone has their vested interest, OROP and CPC are your own. Do not come up with a big issue to compare with other. As a soldier you hold a great position in front of common people and you should be selective while speaking. Atleast without any political party influence, you should understand the greater cause of currency ban and make people aware of its significance rather than cribbing on your own issues.lt;br/gt;And if still you feel fighting against corruption , black money etc is not your cup of tea; then before asking for OROP, you need not to stand in lines of common men ATMs and should demand an ATM installed at your premise.

              The Govt trots out the 'soldier' line to keep everybody's mouth shut. But they treat those same soldiers like dirt when it comes to giving them the facilities they need during their service and their pensions(OROP) after retirement.

                I know it is painful for him for standing in a queue for getting his own money but just think in a different way, because of such a harsh action it may be possible that every payment option will get digital and Atleast in future no army officer has to stand in ATM to withdraw cash .As everything will go white earning of government will also increase if government has enough wealth they will definitely use it for the welfare of our army officer.

What they are doing we have no words to express for their services but we soldier cannot be compared with a civilian please stop playing These type of politics and stop with the human sentiment there are many examples to instead of this and I do agree with him step is good but bad execution

                          Sorry to have to do this to you, but the higher levels of Armed Forces are highly corrupt. As far as counterfeit currency is concerned, it is only 0.02% at any given period of time in circulation and as far as terrorist organisations go, this crunch would only be for a short time, Pak, Saudi and US dollars will quickly cover the cash crunch. And if China decides to joins in new 2000 will be counterfeited even faster...

                            The Congress never promised OROP. The difference here is BJP did and are now duping the soldiers by saying they have implemented, whereas they have given a one time increase in 5 years and that too after degrading the pay rank of a Captain to Level B government officer. They have also shelved the pay increase recommended for BSF and ITBp, our first line of Defense. The circular, now called an hoax reduced 100% disability pension from 45,000 to 25 a month. lt;br/gt;Pampore saw new fresh recruits being sent to field to be killed as they could not give even 24 hours to CO of 10 Para to prepare, Pathankot and URI saw blatant disregard for RAW intelligence!! lt;br/gt;Kala Yuga hai bhai, ghor Kala Yuga...

                                  Don't hide the incompetency by invoking nationalism or comparing with Congress. Congress was kicked out and if you always compare yourself with congress, be ready for same result.

                                    Most of Modi Bhakts are actually not understand the meaning of Desh Bhakti they believe that supporting Modi is the only way. And if you are saying any thing against Modi you are traitor.

                                            Correct. Saying"Wah, Wah",and calling it a day, is not enough. We should all raise our voices through SM,etc. and pressurise the Govt. to ensure OROP correctly implemented. Start today!
