jaitelyDefence Minister Arun Jaitley assured the Lok Sabha today that the country’s defence forces are fully prepared to thwart threats to its sovereignty from any quarter.

Intervening in a discussion on the Demands for Grants under his Ministry, he said all needs of the three services in every critical area have been met. Funds are no crunch.

The defence forces have already been paid two instalments of arrears under the One-Rank-One-Pension Scheme, OROP. The third instalment is to be paid shortly, Mr. Jaitley said. The discussion is continuing.
