Ex-servicemen to intensify protest over OROP after PM made no definite announcement from Red Fort

Sharing is Caring

New Delhi, Aug 15 (ANI): The ex-servicemen, who are protesting over the implementation of One Rank One Pension (OROP) at Jantar Mantar, have intensified their agitation after Prime Minister Modi made no definite announcement from Red Fort. Major General (Retd.) Satbir Singh said that they will reject all official celebrations, be it for ’65 war or for ’71 war. One Rank, One Pension (OROP) scheme has been a long-standing demand of nearly three-million ex-servicemen and war widows in the country. It seeks to ensure that a uniform pension is paid to defence personnel, who retire at the same rank with the same length of service irrespective of their date of retirement.
