The Modi Government’s claim that it is an efficient government is in doldrums. The One Rank One Pension (OROP) issue, which the BJP in their election campaign stated that it would be settled if they come in to power, has not been settled, despite the BJP Government in power for more than one year.
It was expected to be announced by the Prime Minister, but nothing happened. It was propagated that it would be issued on 28th August 2015, the war Veteran’s day, but nothing happened.
The Defence Minister is stating that they have agreed in principle on OROP. Does agreeing in principle get releief to the Defence pensioners?
Action, not words are required. Modi Government should issue the orders without any delay.
