Army Chief urges ex-servicemen to call off OROP protests
TIMES NOW | 3rd June, 2015 at 6:00 PM
Army Chief General Dalbir Singh Suhag today met ex-servicemen and urged them to end their agitation over the delay in implementation of 'One Rank, One Pension' scheme, but the former defence officers have refused to budge.
Prime Minister Narendra Modi recently assured the ex-servicemen on the roll-out of the OROP scheme in his monthly 'Mann Ki Baat' programme on radio, but the retired defence personnel have sought a firm timeline on scheme's implementation. Miffed over this issue, the ex-servicemen have planned a protest on June 14.
