Ex-servicemen have lodged a complaint regarding the problems being faced in availing of canteen facilities and drawing their quota of liquor due to the restrictions imposed because of the Covid.

At some places, the canteen is away from the entrance, which required veterans to undergo entry procedures, read a letter written to the Army Veterans Cell by the United Front of Ex-servicemen, Mohali.

The front has urged the Army authorities to set up temporary canteen counters near the main gates so that the veterans do not face hassles while purchasing necessary items.

The problem is has compounded due to some CSD depots remaining closed for many days because of the pandemic, thereby affecting the supply of goods. Moreover, some canteens are open only for serving personnel and not for veterans, the letter said.
