"The society has a strong faith on army personnel," Singh said. Stating that the value of ex-servicemen is very important in the society, Singh lauded the activities of social worker Anna Hazare, who was also a retired soldier. Singh also listened various grievances of ex-servicemen who attended the interaction programme from across the state.
They presented demands including permanent employment to the ex-servicemen who are working in government and private companies, impact on ex-servicemen after implementation of GST, setting up of Army Memorial Club in Odisha.
