Veteran social activist Anna Hazare on Sunday criticized the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP)-led NDA Government over the delay in implementation of the One Rank, One Pension (OROP) scheme and urged the people to raise their voice on the issue.

“A soldier guards the country’s border in difficult conditions in places like Leh and Ladak. The present government had also promised before the elections that they would implement the One Rank, One Pension scheme. It has been over a year now and nothing has been done…Therefore, the people should raise their voice,” Anna Hazare said.

The OROP scheme has been a long-standing demand of ex-servicemen’s associations and relates to payment of uniform pension to defence forces personnel retiring in the same rank with the same length of service, irrespective of their date of retirement.

    We all know that OROP will be implemented from April 2014 date, just like pay commissions. This fellow coming and talking about OROP is like, Me claiming that Sun will rise tomorrow morning because of me. He is similar cartoon as Rahul hi and Kejriwal who think they have made a huge impact and sunrises because of them. When will these nautanki stop from these dumbs......

      a person who does not know anything about defence becomes expert in defence matters-- this is INDIA and it is an irony that such people control the defence forces. they compare it with all govt/semi govt/pvt employeees. why not give them the ry/facilities being given to psu companies i.e. ongc , gas india, bpcl. hpcl, etc.

            "payment of uniform pension to defence forces personnel retiring in the same rank with the same length of service, irrespective of their date of retirement". is a good demand, but why for defence personnel only. Why not for all govt / semi govt / pvt employees ? When so many years were given to congress led govt , why not few years to NDA govt? For artificial fame-game , aandolans should be banned.
