PM LIKELY TO ANNOUNCE DATE OF OROP ON AUGUST 15
NEW DELHI: Agitating military veterans, on a relay hunger strike for the last 57 days, are now hoping that Prime Minister Narendra Modi will announce the long-delayed implementation of one rank, one pension (OROP) from the ramparts of the Red Fort on August 15.
Some ex-servicemen say there "are concrete indications" that the government will announce OROP on Independence Day since "the file, after some heated disagreements between the finance and defence ministries, has finally reached the PMO".
