BJP gets support of Ex-servicmen: PBOR


A few days after an outfit championing the cause of the ex-servicemen extended its support to the ruling  Congress,  Uttarakhand Personal Below Officer Rank (PBOR) has lent   unconditional support to BJP in the forthcoming  election due on February 15. While disclosing the outfit’s support to BJP at the latter’s headquarters in Dehradun, its central president Shamsher Singh Bisht said on Saturday that their association comprising the  below officers rank represented  all  the three wings of the defence forces.  Lakhs of  servicemen/ex servicemen and their family members  residing in Uttarakhand,  the development might help the BJP in the polls, observers say.

“Around 97 percent  of the servicemen/ ex servicemen belonging to the  below the officers’ rank with just two percent belonging to the   officers’ class, the support lent by us might prove decisive at the hustings,” he said.

Lauding the BJP- led Centre for clearing one rank one pension (OROP) scheme, he said it had boosted the morale of the soldiers posted at borders who embarked on the daring  surgical strike   while crossing  the line of control (LoC).He further said that they would stage road shows and door to door campaign in favour of BJP.
