Advani promises military veterans One-Rank One-Pension

It goes without saying that there are few things less reliable than a politician before elections. However, it was no less than the BJP's prime ministerial candidate LK Advani who stopped by at the veteran hungerstrike at Jantar Mantar in Delhi and offered them his support. According to a statement released by the Indian Ex-Servicement Movement (IESM) which organises the hungerstrikes (and the return of upto 13,000 gallantry and good service medals so far to the government), Advani, on behalf of his party and its NDA partners, fully endorsed the demand and categorically stated that if elected to office, they will implement "One Rank One Pension" without any delay.
