PM Modi reiterates commitment to ‘One Rank One Pension’ during ‘Mann ki Baat’
NEW DELHI: Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Sunday reiterated his government’s commitment to implement the One Rank, One Pension (OROP) scheme for ex-servicemen, but sought time to resolve its complexities.
Attacking the previous governments for “playing politics” over the issue for the past 40 years, he said OROP was “a complex issue, a vexed issue. You have been patient for 40 years. Give me some time to address it.”
In his ‘Mann ki Baat’ radio address, Modi said various departments were working to resolve the complexities as “it is not a simple matter” and added that “running commentary” through the media on the details of the progress will not help.
