New Delhi: Succumbing to the pressure mounted by the ex-servicemen’s protest demanding the implementation of One Rank One Pension (OROP), Modi government is likely to announce the implementation of OROP on the occasion of 50th anniversary of the 1965 war against Pakistan.
Sources revealed that Prime Minister Narendra Modi iss likely to make the announcement himself. The decision seems to have been taken when three ex-servicemen decided to go on a fast-unto-death. The three veterans are retired Pushpender Singh, Havaldar Major Singh, Havaldar Ashok Chauhan. Things worsened when Colonel Singh was moved to the ICU on Monday after his health deteriorated. Havaldal Major Singh is also said to be critical.
