Ex-servicemen to continue strike over OROP

New Delhi, Sep 6 (IANS) Agitating servicemen on Sunday said they will continue their protest over the One Rank One Pension (OROP) scheme as the government did not accept all their demands.

Maj. Gen. Satbir Singh (retd.), who has been heading the veterans’ campaign, said even though the government accepted the implementation of OROP on Saturday, they will continue their agitation as the government had to do more in this regard.

“The agitation will continue. We will intensify it further,” he told the media at Jantar Manta, adding that not much money is required to fulfill their remaining demands.

“Only Rs.30 crore would be needed,” he said.

He said a rally will be organised across the country on September 12.
