Former UCPN (Maoist) combatants who have chosen voluntary retirement Thursday submitted letter of memorandum to Army Integration Special Committee (AISC) putting forth various demands.
A team of Ex combatants led by deputy battalion commander Bhaktaraj Thapa submitted the memorandum to the AISC coordinator Balananda Sharma demanding release of the second installment of the amount they are entitled to get under the voluntary retirement scheme by mid September. Earlier, the AISC had decided to provide them second installment by the end of October.
The former combatants have also demanded free medical treatment to the combatants who were injured and disabled during warfare, employment to at least one member of martyr's family, free education to the martyrs' children and lifetime allowance to the disabled combatants among other.
They have also warned of 'movement' if their demands are not met. nepalnews.com
