Ex-servicemen Monday slammed the one-member judicial committee created by the government to look into the implementation of the One Rank One Pension policy, and said they would boycott the proceedings of the committee.

The government had appointed retired Patna High Court Chief Justice L Narasimha Reddy to head the committee. But ex-servicemen said they would not make any representation to the committee, and would approach the Supreme Court to challenge the government’s notification.

“We never agreed on the commission but the government has gone ahead and created one. This is the end of the road for back-channel dialogue which was on with MoS V K Singh… we will approach the SC before the new year,” Colonel (retd) Anil Kaul, spokesperson of the United Front of Ex-Servicemen, said.

The ex-servicemen, who have also threatened to boycott the Republic Day function, said the commission should include five members — three ex-servicemen, one MoD representative and a judicial member.
