Ex-CPFWA asks Union Govt to fulfill long pending demands


JAMMU, Jan 15: A press conference was held by the Ex. Central Paramilitary Forces Welfare Association (CPFWA) on Saturday at Gandhi Nagar Jammu. The press conference was held under the chair of S.K Sharma, President of the Association.
In the press conference the president of the Association said that a lot of demands were taken up with the taken the then Home Minister, Raj Nath Singh and the main demand which were put forth through a memorandum were one pension one Rank and restoration of pension scheme to those employees (Paramilitary forces) who were appointed in the year who were appointed in the year 2004 onwards but till date nothing has been done in this regard. To consider as per the PMF with the Defense Forces as the work of the MPF is similar to DF and MLC and also provide the CSD facilities.
He said that the MP, MLA and MLC and Rajya Sabha are elected by the common masses for a period of 05 years and are eligible for the pension and other allied facilities whereas the paramilitary forces who are fighting for the integrity of the country has been ignored from such facilities and what sort of justice is done with us by the hands of the Administration.
The paramilitary forces do the fighting, face the enemy and sacrifice with the same vigour, valour and patriotism and suffer consequences like defense forces. But the benefits and concessions extended to Armed forces under the MOD are not being extended to Armed forces under MHA which is against the law and the ethics of natural justice. The service condition of paramilitary forces is regulated by a strong set of Acts with the provision to award punishments up to court- marital similar to Defence forces.
