The alleged suicide by an ex-serviceman Ram Kishan Grewal for One-Rank-One-Pension (OROP) has given some politicians a golden opportunity to play their games in the season of crucial assembly elections. But whenever such games are played, people remain deprived of the truth. Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) chief Arvind Kejriwal was the first to take a plunge in the game. He released a video message, making damning accusations against Prime Minister Narendra Modi and the BJP government at the Centre. Kejriwal was followed by his colleague and Delhi deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia and Congress vice-president Rahul Gandhi, who were stopped by Delhi Police from meeting the kin of the deceased at a hospital in the National Capital.

In the video, Arvind Kejriwal claimed that PM Modi is a liar and he accused the Centre of doing biggest fraud with the soldiers of the country. Kejriwal also claimed that Modi government has drastically reduced the disability pension provided to the soldiers.

Below is the text of some part of Kejriwal’s damning video message, followed by what PM Modi and the Union government have so far said on the crucial OROP and disability pension issues. You can compare and judge for yourself who is lying and who is playing politics with sentiments of soldiers.

Arvind Kejriwal Damns Narendra Modi: Here’s what he says in video message

“It is sad that ex-servicemen have been demanding OROP for the last one-and-a-half year. But it has not been implemented. This means that what the PM is saying is a lie. PM is lying to the entire country that OROP has been implemented.

“Why would have Ram Kishan Ji committed suicide if OROP had been implemented? The kind of fraud the country’s BJP, Central government has done with the Armed forces, I don’t think, it has ever happened before.

“First, the OROP has not been implemented which led Ramkishan Ji to commit suicide. Second, a day after the Surgical Strike, the Centre, instead of rewarding the soldiers, the Centre reduced the disability pension of soldiers drastically.”

What has PM Narendra Modi said on OROP?

Talking to ITBP personnel in Sumdo, Himachal Pradesh on Diwali, Prime Minister Narendra Modi said the first instalment of nearly Rs 5,500 crore has been paid for implementing the OROP scheme. PM Modi asserted that he had “fulfilled the promise” made to ex-servicemen on the issue that has not been resolved for 40 years.

“The OROP was not about just Rs 200 or Rs 500 crore, but Rs 10,000 crore… After I became the PM, and decided that I had to do (implement) it, the entire government lost sleep over it… It was not possible for the government to pay in one go, so I requested the ex-servicemen to accept it in four instalments.

“The money will reach them in four instalments. Nearly, Rs 5,500 crore has been paid as the first instalment,” PTI quoted him as saying.

What has Manohar Parrikar said on disability pension cut ?

Defence Minister Manohar Parrikar on October 29 said the armed forces personnel would continue to get the disability pension based on percentage system till the Anomaly Committee came out with a report on the issue.

A letter issued by the defence ministry on October 30 had introduced a slab-based pension as recommended by the 7th Pay Commission. After this, the ministry had referred the matter to the Anomaly Committee.

                Yes Kejriwal is saying accute being an Ex Serviceman wishes to say that BJP and its alliance including NarendraModi and Manohar Parikkar is telling lie on OROP. I hope because of ic work of Arun Jaitley who has become through back door since he was rejected by public at Amritsar in 2014 for haring entire Central Government Employees, Defence Personnel especially JCOs/ORs and their families

                    Anomalies of the forces have not been resolved from 4th Pay Commission onwards.So RM i8s following what Defence secretaries have been doi8ng in the past.For Civilian employees there are consultative committees at all levels,including those civilians paid from defence budget.People in uniform have no say.Even PM and RM have no say.Desk officers of MO(D decide for those in uniform.And MODI reads out what they write for Kejriwal to call him a liar. For once Kejriwal is right.NDA has given veterans OROP sanctioned by Desk officer of MOD and not as ped by the Parliament.!

                                Kejriwal will do all antics. He is just 3rd grade opportunist 'leader'. People have discarded him long ago. Why bother? May in Punjab he will know his value.
