Modi, OROP and RSS

Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s clarification on OROP appears to be goaded by RSS pressure day before yesterday. A wise step. It was clear only Modi could have overruled Finance Minister Arun Jaitley. The nuances can wait but battle of perception had to be won.

Whether Satbir Singh, who has led the veteran’s strike, returns to Jantar Mantar or not, Modi has checked the losing opinion even among the veterans. Some even jumped in joy. BJP almost had lost its nationalist credentials. Modi saved the blushes just in nick of time.

But the irony, the Prime Minister needs RSS’ field report for corrective measures. Strange that the govt despite good show is being seen first as anti-farmer and now anti-soldier.

Bobbie Jamwal, well known InfoTech, Infrastructure, Eco-Technologies, HealthCare and Aviation consultant from Delhi responded to this column by Shitanshu Shekhar Shukla by observing; ” Thank God better sense prevailed and the RSS had to intervene.”

The righteous Indian soldier would not have forgiven this country’s rulers for treating them like the way they did in these past 40 years and particularly in the last 80 days of ‘Dharna,’ not heard of anywhere in the world that a Veteran who served his country well had to go on a hunger strike for his dues and parity. They are honorable men and deserve a hearing with respect, observes Jamwal

Newsroom24x7 Desk

Prime Minister Narendra ModiNew Delhi: Prime Minister Narendra Modi today cleared the doubts on the One Rank One Pension (OROP) issue and declared that the defence veterans who who retired prematurely will be entitled to OROP.

The Prime Minister made this announcement at a rally he addressed in Faridabad on Sunday – a day after Defence Minister Manohar Parrikar announced the Government’s decision to implement the OROP scheme and said that the veterans who took voluntary retirement would not be covered under this scheme.

The Prime Minister pulled up the Congress and said that justice has been done with regard to the ex-servicemen’s demand for OROP pending for more than 40 years

The veterans sitting on strike at Jantar Mantar here have welcomed the Government’s decision on OROP but rejected the provision to keep the veterans, who retire voluntarily, out of the ambit of the scheme and announced that their protest would continue.

In the meanwhile, Major General (retired) Satbir Singh told reporters that their strike would continue if the Government failed to accept their four-point demands, including equalisation of pension.
