AAM ADMI PARTY PRESS RELEASE : OROP
The men who dedicated their lives in the service of the nation are today miffed with the Narendra Modi led BJP government and its policies. The ex-servicemen of the nation are being forced to resort to ways and means like boycotting Defence minister’s function to raise their voice and demands. It’s a sad situation and very much in line with the present circumstances under Modi rule where every demand is crushed and every voice is tried to be trampled down.
It is sad to know that our brave ex servicemen have been forced to heighten their agitation for their long standing demand of one-rank, one-pension mechanism.
The sorry state of our former defence men particularly exposes the apathy and hypocrisy of Modi government because BJP launched its Lok Sabha election campaign with ex-servicemen in attendance and with the promise of implementing the mechanism as soon as it came to power.
The war heroes and veterans of the country are annoyed of the false promises made by the Narendra Modi government and government's inaction on any promises made to the former soldiers even after a year. The veterans are now forced to take the course of protest in Jantar Mantar in the days to come.
Aam Aadmi Party demands that the One-Rank, One-Pension scheme be implemented at the earliest and the government should have the guts to stand by the promises it has made. Disappointment of the ex-servicemen is disappointment for the whole nation. Any misery to the people who sacrificed their lives for nation is an insult to the Nation.
