OROP Row: Amit Shah to brief party spokespersons today

AMIT SHAH

New Delhi: BJP President Amit Shah would be briefing party spokespersons on the issue of One Rank, One Pension (OROP) at 1 p.m. on Saturday.

It is probable that the Narendra Modi-led NDA Government would be making an announcement today on the must awaited issue.

The government has been facing criticism after its determination to stick to its position on a five-year reset clause, while the military veterans are insisting the pensions be revised at least once every two years.

The ex-servicemen had originally demanded an annual adjustment.

The OROP scheme has been a long-standing demand of nearly three million ex-servicemen and war widows in the country. (ANI)^
