Armed forces as a vote bank - The Hindu

Online comments posted on March 12, 2014:

Armed Forces deserve special treatment as regards service conditions including those relating to post-service social security for men in uniform and their dependents. In this respect, government has recognised this need to a limited extent and perhaps that is behind (a) not extending NPS to Defence Services (b) now conceding 'one rank-one-pension and similar measures. Much more need to be done by improving and overhauling the entire Defence Architecture including the equipment and arms being provided to the forces. Several lapses are being pointed out these days in regard to obsolete machinery, aircraft and ships in use. May be, GOI may get the position reviewed by an expert High Level Commission.
