NEW DELHI: The ex-servicemen protesting for the One Rank, One Pension (OROP) scheme on Sunday said that they are upset with the one launched by the government and added that they will intensify their agitation.
“The government has betrayed us. They promised us something else and have announced something else,” one of the ex-servicemen Skattar Singh Dhariwal told ANI.
“We are upset with this and we will further intensify our agitation,” he added.
On Saturday afternoon, Defence Minister Manohar Parrikar announced that the government has decided to implement the much awaited OROP scheme, stating that there would be a revision of pension every five years as against the two years demanded by the ex-servicemen.
He also said that the government would also setup a one-member judicial committee to work out details of implementation of the OROP.
