The finance minister on Friday made all darkness surrounding the one rank one pension (OROP) issue crystal clear. While addressing the press Jaitley said that some ex-servicemen said that a few of their issues are unresolved and that the government made Justice Reddy committee to address that.

“When such huge amounts are disbursed a few calculation mistakes have happened from the bank side,” said the finance minister.

On the suicide of ex serviceman Ram Kishan Grewal Jaitley said that the government fully sympathises with the defence personnel and his family. Taking potshots at the reactions of opposition leaders like Rahul Gandhi and Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal, the finance minister said that this kind of behaviour doesn’t behove senior national leaders to exploit a tragedy of this kind.

Terming the opposition reaction and extracting political mileage out of it as an unfortunet event, Arun Jaitley said that no one should try to do that.
