Speaking at a gathering in Kolkata, Congress Vice President Rahul Gandhi attacked the Narendra Modi Government over the delay in the implementation of the one-rank, one-pension (OROP) scheme. Congress vice-president Rahul Gandhi on Saturday said soldiers and ex-servicemen are suffering and Prime Minister Narendra Modi is busy doing yoga.
“Before the elections, Modi ji went to Haryana, Punjab, and said OROP will be done immediately when they will come to power,” said Gandhi while addressing party workers at the Netaji Indoor Stadium in Kolkata.
“It has been one year now. The soldiers are crying and threatening to launch an agitation. They are asking the government to disclose as to when the OROP would be implemented…Modi ji says I am busy doing yoga, ask me later,” he added.
In May this year, the Congress vice-president said that he would ‘pressurise’ the Centre to act on the one-rank, one-pension issue at the earliest.
