BJP leader Subramanian Swamy on Monday said he had met Defence Minister Manohar Parrikar who assured him that the government would introduce the one rank, one pension scheme for all military personnel in the current session of Parliament.
The scheme was one of the BJP’s major poll promises for the 2014 Lok Sabha elections.
Dr. Swamy said they also discussed various strategic perspectives and the necessary weapons acquisition required to meet the national security threats.
He said Mr. Parrikar had told him that the Henderson-Brookes Report on the 1962 China conflict will, with a little editing, be declassified soon.
The Henderson-Brooks report blames the Nehru government’s ill-conceived and ill-timed “Forward Policy,” without proper intelligence or adequate military preparation, for India’s defeat in 1962.

Under whose authority and on what basis is Dr. Swamy saying this. ?? Does he know more than DM Mr. Parikar and why can't DM take the credit for this news ??? DM has spoken on OROP without any definite date yesterdsy at Mumbai and today at Delhi. Dr Swamy should keep quiet instead of adding insult to injury and only the DM should come clean, if he wants to. The meeting called tomorrow is to give another lame excuse for further delay else he could have given a definite statement. Dear ESM, take it easy with a couple of pegs of rum .ReplyDelete
No definite date is likely to be announced. stretch of time weeks or months before completion of one year in office current parliament session how lethargic they are. they do not understand the anxiety of the ex defense personnel very pathetic and sadReplyDelete
It was already announced in Budget session twice. Now why again in Parliament session? Only implementation circular is to be published by PCDA. .ReplyDelete
God needs to define now 'top priority' since last one year we are listening such words every often.ReplyDelete
How much and many time will take for implementation of orop. Salary of MP/MLA and other chamchas takes only once for claping the tableReplyDelete
