Army Veterans Hold Rally in Ambala Against One Rank One Pension ‘Dilution’
Scores of military veterans from Haryana, Punjab and Delhi today held a protest against the “diluted” notification of ‘One Rank, One Pension’ (OROP) scheme and vowed to go to “any extent” to pressurise the Central government to meet their demand.
A number of retired Army officers were also present in the rally. Ex-servicemen from Haryana, Delhi, Punjab and nearby states joined the rally.
Addressing the rally, Major General Satbir Singh (retd), Chairman of Indian Ex-Servicemen Movement spearheading the protest, alleged that the Union government “has betrayed the ex-servicemen”.
He said that notification issued by the government was not acceptable to any ex-servicemen.
Mr Satbir Singh demanded that the notification should be withdrawn at the earliest and a new notification should be released according to the demands of ex-servicemen
