The Rashtriya Rifles, a unit of the Indian Army, organised a mega ex-servicemen rally in Doda town of Bhadarwah district in Jammu and Kashmir, an Army officer said. The rally, which was organised by the 4 RR, was attended by over 100 ex-servicemen, war veterans, disabled soldiers, war widows and other family members hailing from Bhadarwah, Bhalessa, Chirala and Marmat areas of Doda district, the officer said. The meet was held to provide a platform for registration of grievances and for their immediate redressal. Issues related to pension, health care, re-employment, among many others were taken up at the meet, he said. Commanding Officer Col D D Pandey chaired the event. Later, officers of the battalion and president of District Sainik Board interacted with the veterans and briefed them about the various schemes. The commanding officer said ex-servicemen remain a part of the Army and are an extremely important constituent of society. Even though they have completed their service yet they continue to work for our country, he said.
