“The Ex-servicemen will receive good news about OROP by Navratri.” - DM Manohar Parrikar

Published:Oct 4, 2015, 20:36 By ENS - Parrikar hits out at Nawaz Sharif, says India doesn’t need advice about troops in Siachen. "We need not listen to others on what we should do in our country. If anyone speaks anything about our country then I will prefer to ignore it," Parrikar said.


Defence Minister Manohar Parrikar on Sunday said it was upto India to decide whether it should withdraw or keep forces deployed in Siachen, and does not need advise from Nawaz Sharif.

Parrikar was in Vadtal, Kheda district of Gujarat, to attend the closing ceremony of a Mahasammelan of retired servicemen under the ‘Akhil Bhartiya Purva Sainik Seva Parishad’ (All India Former Defence Personnels Association).

Speaking at the sidelines of the event, Parrikar said, “whether we should withdraw troops from Siachen or keep them deployed is our decision. We do not need any lessons from Nawaz Sharif and I choose to ignore it.”

Parrikar replied saying so, when asked to comment about Sharif’s speech at the UN General Assembly on September 30, putting forth a four-point peace initiative with India, which included a proposal of demilitarisation of Kashmir. Parrikar also said that the situation in Kashmir was peaceful and the government was committed to ensuring peace in the valley.
Parrikar said that Make in India was a key program for the defence sector as it was seen as a generator of employment for almost 30 lakh youth, however, advised patience in the implementation of the policy.

Speaking of the overseas deployment of INS Trikand in Istanbul, Parrikar said that Turkey was “our friend” and the exercise would help strengthen friendship.
“Turkey is our friend and INS Trikand has reached Istanbul as part of a joint exercise,” Parrikar said about the stealth frigate of Indian Navy that is currently on a deployment in West Asia, Africa and Europe.

Earlier, Parrikar visited the Swaminarayan temple on arriving in Vadtal, Kheda from Vadodara and proceeded to the stage where he also delivered a 30-minute speech to the gathering of over 2000 former servicemen, reminiscing his younger days in Goa. Parrikar said, as a child, he would often accompany Armymen posted in the state, to show them directions in Goa.

Parrikar addressed the issue of OROP and said 

the government was committed to its proposal 

for implementing OROP and said, “The Ex-

servicemen will receive good news about OROP 

by Navratri.”

Steering clear of controvesy, however, Parrikar declined to comment on the ongoing reservation stir in Gujarat by various communities, saying that the state government was well equipped to handle the situation.

  1. DM Shri Manohar Parrikar had told the same words months eariier and when heard after months it was not a good news. This time let us see whether it is good. It will be good news for the veteran fraternity if it will be as per approved definition in perpetuity.

  3. Dear RM you are very good at spelling out schedule for implementation of OROP, remember on 5 Step' 2015 you said in 2-3 days official notification would be released, that promise is not kept till date and now you are coming with Navaratri !!! Prior to that there are confusions to be sorted out, what about them? Are you determined to dish out diluted OROP? Other than the one that was approved in Parliament twice?

  11. In what way is Navaratri linked with the implementation of undiluted OROP to ex servicemen? Personal at front are not that fortunate to celeberate festivals and holidays like you all do. It is better you be practical and stop giving dates please. THE VETRANS are no more tolerant for such gimicks.

  12. This type of good news delivered by the DM Mr. Manohar Parikar so many times earlier. we wants the OROP which was approved by the government without diluting the definition. what is the problem to relesed the order in black and white. we are only asking our dues which was given to the latest rertired soldiers. we were served for the nation with out fearing our life. that could not understood by the politican and bureacrats. once who served in the defence only he/she will know the facts. defence persons welfare can not compare with other departments. vetrans wants OROP implement in approved definition without diluting. government/ politicans are playing the game for their vote benifit, don't forget you are foolishing the sincerity of the soldiers who are guarding the nation safely from the enemy. thats why the people of the nation are sleeping without fear.

  15. When will this man Manohar Parrikar stop talking and learn to keep quiet leaving others to some doubts on his standing in this government. Any one statement that he has stood by since meeting ESMs on 1st Feb.??????Chup rahna seekho sir, aapki baat ki FM aur PM ke aage kya value hai ESMs ko maaloom hai..........

  16. All I expect from the MOD is a formal issue of an executive order confirming the announcement made on 05 September. That is not OROP but ORFP (One Rank Five Pensions) because of the declaration of a 5 yearly review. Pensions will change every year but will not be applicable till the 5 year limit takes place. He is forced to fool the public by Modi and Jhootlie because of the elections and to ensure that the protestors at Jantar Mantar lose public sympathy. What a sham!

  23. We the veterans look like farmers with desperation in drought. If the rain comes his needs will be fulfilled. This proverb lit a ray of hope that empowers him till the last breath of his suicide. Lt us hope this story should not reflect in our lives.
