A HUGE rally of ex-servicemen was organised at the Honorary Captain Shankar Lakshman stadium on Sunday morning to address their problems and provide them latest information of policies and regulations.
A large number of ex-servicemen and veer naris (wives of those who died in wars) took part in the rally giving the stadium a festive look.
Infantry School, Mhow officiating Commandant Maj Gen Anand Mohan Verma, Mhow Station Commander Brig P K Kaushik and Mhow Station Administrative Commandant Col Sudhendra Singh met ex-servicemen and the veer naris to listen to their problems and offer solutions.
