New Delhi, Sep 5 (IANS) The ruling Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) on Saturday welcomed the implementation of the One Rank One Pension (OROP) scheme, calling it a historic decision.
The party said that the Narendra Modi government had honoured the soldiers of the country.
“We welcome the decision. It is a historic decision,” BJP general secretary Anil Jain said here.
