The meeting was attended by several ex-servicemen. The participants bemoaned that their long-pending demand for one rank one pension part was still unsolved, the release said.

Some ex-servicemen from remote rural interiors sought a mobile canteen to visit their areas while others sought supply of medicines and exemption of toll tax on their vehicles even there was also a notification of National Highways Authority of India (NHAI) in this context.

Several ex-servicemen highlighted their demand that those retiring at young age should be adjusted in the para-military forces.

Maj Nirpender Singh Sangwan, chairman of the ex-servicemen cell, said he would take up all these demands the state chief minister Bhupinder Singh Hooda.

Former legislator Sangwan said Hooda had uplifted the living conditions of ex-servicemen after the Congress government came to power in 2005.

He said local MP Shruti Chondhary looked into the problems faced by ex-servicemen of the district on a regular basis.
