Ex-servicemen hold silent rallies

Several thousand ex-servicemen are holding silent protest rallies across many cities in the country against the raw deal handed out to the armed forces by the Sixth Pay Commission.

A lone veteran, Major General Satbir Singh went up to the Amar Jawan Jyoti on Sunday morning and laid a wreath to kickstart the silent protests.

The main function scheduled at India Gate was cancelled because the Home Ministry denied permission for a gathering of ex-servicemen.
