New Delhi: The ex-servicemen community will carry out a run on Kargil Victory Day on July 26 seeking 'One Rank One Pension', an issue for which they have been protesting for over a month.

"It will also be step one in the escalation of the ongoing protest. The run will commence at 5.45 AM from DSOI Dhaula Kuan and terminate at Jantar Mantar, venue of the relay hunger strike by ex-servicemen," a statement by the United Front of Ex-Servicemen said.

The run will be led by Indian Army blade runner Maj DP Singh (Retd).

45 MP's led by TMC leader Derek O'Brien are likely to visit those undertaking protest at Jantar Mantar, the statement added.
