Kargil heroes denied their just due sign now

Sir,







As a citizen of the country I was shocked to read in the Hindustan Times that Colonel Lalit Rai, the hero of Khalubar who commanded 1/11 Gorkha Rifles, and Colonel Umesh Singh Bawa, the commanding officer of 17 Jat, who were awarded Vir Chakras (VrC) for "inspirational leadership and conspicuous bravery" and Colonel OP Yadav, who led 1 Bihar to capture Jubar top and Tharu feature, and was awarded the Yudh Seva Medal have been denied the rank of Brigadier by a promotion board.







The litmus test for an Army is the battlefield. It is here that all the training and preparation is proved. The true colours of its men is demonstrated in the heat of battle and those who perform above and beyond the call of duty risking life and limb deserve recognition. When these men who have demonstrated exemplary courage are denied their due it is high time that the institution reviews its promotion procedures.







Every Army needs its heroes. It is these heroic acts of bravery that become part of the legend and inspire future generations of soldiers to risk life and limb to uphold Regimental traditions.







These brave officers demonstrated exemplary courage and led their men from the front during the Kargil conflict. Their acts turned the tide in the war and raised the morale of the troops.







We appeal to you as the Commander in Chief of the Armed Forces to intervene in the matter and ensure that these officers get their just due.
