OROP suicide: Comments made by former army chief and present Union Minister in the Narendra Modi government General V K Singh on the suicide of ex-serviceman Ram Kishan Grewal over not receiving One Rank One Pension (OROP) scheme benefits, Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal reacted in anger.

Following reports on the suicide of the former army subedar, Gen VK Singh demanded an investigation on the matter saying, “Reason for his suicide being reported is OROP, don’t know what his mental state was, need investigation.”

Infuriated by the former Army chief’s statement, the Delhi Chief Minister in a tweet said, “Shame on u VKSingh. He twice got medals from President and once from COAS. He was a decorated soldier.”

Ex-serviceman Subedar Ram Kisan Grewal, who had come to the city to submit a memorandum to the Defence Ministry on the issues relating One Ran One Pension (OROP), allegedly committed suicide, consuming poison. In a letter, before his death, Grewal had apparently pleaded to the government for the implementation of OROP.

Following the suicide, politicians tried to meet the family of the ex-serviceman, but were detained by the Delhi police. Kejriwal was stopped from entering the hospital where the body of Grewal is kept for post mortem, while Chief Minister Manish Sisodia was detained for attempting to meet the relatives of the deceased army man.

Congress vice-president Rahul Gandhi was also been restricted from entering the RML Hospital and was detained at the Mandir Marg police station for 70 minutes.

    Does anyone need more proof that the Delhi police and the LG are working for the BJP?I bet they are trying their best to intimidate the family. You see the hype can't contradict facts so blatantly, even for BJP standards.

            Sad that a JCO Sub RamKrishan committed Suicide probably to avoid further suffering on OROP issue-Langdi OROP.He was depressed and frustated.No one was available to listion to his issues and problem. He felt lonely and ended his life to highlight the issues in place them in a public domain.He did well during his service as was awarded both by President and Chief of Army.We pay our respect and salute him.RIP Sub. Ram Krishan

                  Congress is the mother fountain of all such nonsensical issues which the present government is trying to sort out and it is possible that few mistakes could still happen. Suicide is not the logical step and one do feels sorry for the deceased soldier. RaGa or AK are least qualified to claim that they truly wish welfare of ex-Army men and try to create confusion in the crowded hospital. RaGa's script seems to be going entirely anarchic as he ages. Why does he not talk of mistakes that UPA committed in last 10 years that resulted in UPA being thrown out of power & tell us as to how will he overcome them if elected back to power?

                      Shah Chintan Karma is With all news channels reporting about ex-service man committing suicide over #OROP don't one why they are hiding some crucial facts n on whose orders. As we all by now know that ex-service man Subedar(Retd) Ram Kishan Grewal has committed suicide and without any suicide note media n political parties mainly #Congress And #AAP are saying that he committed suicide due to #NarendraModi govt not fulfilling #OROP promise. But what none of the media or politicians frm #Congress #AAP are saying is that the deceased ex serviceman has been sarpanch of village Bamla in Bhiwani district of Haryana . He was awarded by Congress govt in 2005 & 2008 for his efforts in making his village open defection free by building toilets under Nirmal Bharat programme ( scheme now called Swacch Bharat Abhiyan), during investigationsin 2015 it was found that the village declared Open defection free in 2008 by Haryana Congress govt, only 15% households actually had built toilets under govt scheme and rest were only on papers. As per the then policy payment for all 1882 households were made to village committee headed by Ram Kishan Grewal as sarpanch of village . In June 2016 Ram Kishan Grewal was charged for causing loss to exchequer by raising fraudulent bills in name of building toilets in his village and investigations were going in against him. This reminds me abt another half news that was reported by media last month about suicide of another govt official B.K.Bansal, DG corporate affairs who along with family committed suicide blaming toucher by CBI after he was arrested red handed while accepting bribe of Rs.5 lac, then too media didn't report that Bansals had declared 5 crore income under IDS-2016 .

                          Shame on VK singh, Modi and BJP party. Sudhanshu Trivedi had the audacity of asking how is Ram Kishan is a Shaheed since he committed suicide? Shameful and blind, can't he see he did it to get his fellow soldiers justice?
