Honourable President of India,
New Delhi, India.
Reference: Grievance Registration Number: PRSEC/E/2009/05526.
1. With due honour and respect I submit to you that I was granted President’s Commission and was appointed in the rank of Lieutenant on 26 July 1970 to serve in the Regular Army. This appointment was duly confirmed and a notification was posted in the Gazette of India. As per the directions that I had received at the time of this appointment, I had reported on 22 September 1971 for duty at a multinational military organization called Headquarters Establishment Number. 22 which is also known as Special Frontier Force. During 1971, I had participated in a military action named Operation Eagle and this battle plan was duly sanctioned by the Prime Minister of India. I am seeking your help to obtain due recognition for the service rendered by me during Operation Eagle. The participants of this military action are entitled to receive military decorations, medals, honours, and awards as per the eligibility criteria established by the Prime Minister’s battle plan. I have shared some details about Operation Eagle at my Homepage of Bhavanajagat.com and the details are as follows:-
2. I would request you to give this petition a careful consideration and ask Government of India to take the necessary action to grant the Gallantry Award. If the information that I have provided is reviewed by our Enemy against whom I was directed to take action, the Enemy may discover some merit in my claim and may choose to punish me for my action. Kindly note that Award or Punishment are two-sides of the same coin and it depends upon the perception of the party viewing the coin. If there is any merit in my claim, fairness and justice demand appropriate action.
