OROP: Veterans welcome govt decision, withdraw hunger strike

(Last Updated On: 06/09/2015)

AMN /

Welcoming the government’s decision to implement OROP, agitating ex-servicemen today announced withdrawal of their hunger strike. However, they will continue their protest till all the sticky issues are resolved.

Addressing a press conference in New Delhi, Maj Gen (Retd) Satbir Singh, leader of the association leading the agitation, said the protest will continue till four specific points raised by the ex- servicemen are not accepted by the government.

The ex-servicemen said revision of pension after a gap of five years as announced by the government is not at all acceptable to them, besides appointment of a one-man judicial commission to examine various aspects of one rank-one pension (OROP).

This followed Prime Minister’s announcement that OROP will cover all ex-servicemen including those who retired prematurely.
