We 1.3 Billion Indians stand by our Forces as a symbol of our gratitude.
Honourable Sirs, Our existence, business or families exist because of our brave soldiers. As a gesture of our gratitude I feel all Indians want that the families of the martyrs be looked after well. For a soldier on duty entire nation is his family, therefore this larger family has a duty towards their protectors. I propose that a Bank Account be please opened by the armed forces and controlled by service chiefs only, and its account details be publicised in papers, on TV, on social media etc. This would enable members of public to deposit any amount they wish to contribute. We are a nation of 1.3 Billion and capable of looking after the families of OUR Martyrs. Their families are our responsibility. I hope an early action in this regard may be taken by the three chiefs of Armed Forces. Since this is totally an activity for the welfare of the forces, I am sure the Government of India will have no objection to it. The funds be totally controlled by three chiefs only without the interference of any Government agency or Civil officers. On behalf of all Indians Gurbir S. Grewal
