Petition to Defence Minister of India, Prime Minsiter of India

Take Back the decision of opening cantonment roads, it is a threat to national security

On May 21st Ministry of Defence orders all cantonment roads to be open to the public. Which might sound soothing so ears is actually a threat to the national security of the country and an even bigger threat to the military families. The army in peace stations in working towards it training and rehabilitation which is being done in a secured manner because cantonments are no trespass areas with these areas being open to everyone the smartphones will be clicking pictures which will be breaching the security   The military stations are well maintained and are green areas due to the less number of vehicles and people living there with the increase of people travelling through the are the maintenance of the area will get tougher and will consume more manpower reducing the number of hours army can put in for training. More personals which be deployed for security checks which would increase the already high workload on the army The military roads are constructed from the military budget with the number of vehicles increasing on this road the wear and tear of these roads will increase who will be maintaining these roads then? Morning PT and Runs along with BPT are conducted on these roads with the allowing of general traffic on these roads we are inviting more accidents of the military personnel and their families. There is a sense of security which will be gone and the army would be more involved in crowd management than training We do not want another Pathankot or Jammu like attack. Please don't allow the general traffic  in the military stations it will destroy the integrity of the military stations, will act as a security risk, will increase the workload on the army further decreasing the time of training, it would further increase the maintenance cost of the military cantonment roads and would pollute the green cantonments  Please help and sign this petition so that it reaches to the Prime minister and the defence minister.For Pride honour and security of the Military

Reservation for children of military martyrs-Marriage of Martyr' daughters-Value Education

We students, representing the concerned youth of India would like to bring to your notice that an immediate action should be taken on the following issues concerning the beloved army men of our country :- 1)   Reservation and direct admission for children of war heroes and martyrs. It is the responsibility of us, the nation of India to look after the family of those fallen ones who have given life for the cause of the country. It should be the absolute duty of the state to look after the wellbeing of their family, instilling a sense of belief amongst our brave soldiers that once they are in line of duty, the nation would take care of their family like they are protecting ours. Hence the Government should provide children of such fallen soldier compensation beyond the financial alternatives provided at present. They should have the minimum eligibility criteria of the lowest marks required for any reserve category student of SC/ST/OBC/PHE background. Also the State shall bear the complete expenses free of cost including lodging for education from Primary to Higher Education levels(including masters) for such children. All private institutions should too follow the example as it is their duty too to think above profit motive. The soldiers are sacrificing their lives for their protection too. 2)   It should be the duty of us citizens to ensure that the daughters of such martyrs are married with full prompt and joy where they haven’t just lost a father in active line of duty but have gained the whole nation as a family. Hence it is proposed that the marriage of such daughters should be organized at the Officers Club no matter what rank the martyr was serving as. Where the expenses are bore completely by the State, with Army Officers Wives Association being the entity responsible for overlooking the entire function irrespective of religion or caste. It should be made a public policy and should be advertised around. Such an action would boost the morale of our soldiers in active line of duty, giving them a consolation that if they are martyred, the state shall protect their family and carry on their family responsibility. 3)   In India we don’t have the system of military conscription. Also joining the NCC or Territorial Army is a voluntary act. Hence it is proposed that in order to inculcate an act of benevolence and respect towards the army, every Indian kid post the age of 16 years after appearing for their high school matriculation should be given a brief 1-month training within their schools for active self-defense, disaster management and relief, while teaching them stories of great valor and sacrifices of our military martyrs. After matriculation, every student has to wait for atleast 1-2 months for results and the new term to begin. Hence it is prescribed that in order to use this time period fruitfully; we should make them attend a camp around an army base or army veterans should be sent to such schools to give out this course. Such a course should be non-graded but its attendance shall be compulsory to attain the High School Leaving Certificate. This would create a positive impact and sense of encouragement for our veterans where they are actually motivating the youngsters at grass root level. I request you to kindly endorse this petition and ensure that prompt action is taken to implement it at the soonest possible timeframe. Please spread the word amongst your friends and loved ones so more people join this petition. We must think beyond our idealistic beliefs and endorse this noble idea. This is the least we could do for the plethoric sacrifice of our brave army men.Chief Co-ordinator & Lead In-chargeReetam Singhreetamsingh@gmail.com 75760-26976

Petition to Smt Nirmala Sitharaman

Justice for Shubham - a disabled Indian Army Officer Cadet left unattended by our Nation!

This is Shubham Gupta at the age of 19 he donned a uniform to pursue his dream of proving himself in battle protecting our motherland. He chose to put his life on line to fight for you and me. Today he is fighting a different battle! A battle to survive, a battle to stand on his own feet, a battle to do his daily chores!   He was selected to join the National Defence Academy  in June 2010 for training to become an Officer in the Indian Army. In April 2012 during the advance stage of his training he was wounded while on duty rendering him 100% disabled. His was an attributable injury. An injury that he sustained because he was doing what he was ordered to do, since it was necessary to make him capable enough to protect the nation. He considered it an honour to have been injured on duty in the service of his motherland.   He was boarded out of services with 100% disability, unable to even conduct himself without an attendant crippled for life. His parents whose pride he once was are struggling to provide their undivided attention to him due to his medical condition.   In return of pledging his youth to the nation he was given a pittance of monthly financial aid, which was pet-named ex-gratia and no benefits normally available to disabled Ex-servicemen and surprisingly – Zero Medical Facility.     He may be no one to our Political leaders or the military brass, but to his parents, he was the only hope. They have been running from pillar to post to get justice for him even petitioning the National Human Rights Commission and the President of Indian but no one has bothered to help. I believe, when someone gets injured in service of the nation, the nation is obligated to grant him his due- a decent disability pension.   This is not just his story but that of around 300 Officer Cadets, out there like him, left out in the open, wounded and forgotten. The small group of young boys, who chose the military, not as a career choice, but as a passion. These boys took this decision at a young age, in their teens, not because they did not have enough opportunities in this vibrant world but because, they consider their calling to their country as the No.1 priority. Don’t they deserve a life of dignity? Don’t they deserve a second chance at life, a resettlement?   If not for parents like his who were brave enough to offer their sons to the nation, this great republic would not have been the same. It is because we have youngsters like him, ready to serve and catch a bullet proudly on their chests, willing to die for the nation, that India sleeps peacefully. It is for our tomorrow that they gave their today. It is indeed unfortunate that they had suffered injuries in service of the nation but what is more calamitous is how the nation ignores them, their needs.   I have to take this up, because I still believe in the words of Capt. Manoj Kumar PVC “Some goals are so worthy, it’s glorious even to fail”
After all, I have been trained by the Indian Armed Forces, I couldn’t give up without a fight. I hail this petition for your support for this cause. Lend me your voice for · Disability pension respectable to the rank trained for ·  medical cover · Option for shelter employment in other Government Departments in officer cadre Kindly support this cause.
