WAS IT A FALSE PROMISE MADE TO WIN ELECTORAL BATTLE?

 Ashwatthama Hata:ha Iti, Narova Kunjarova
OROP is solemn promises made to soldiers of the nation. It is no more a question of money. It has become a matter of prestiege & honor for them. It hurts to be misled and taken for a ride. Unfortunately, BJP has failed to appreciate the sensitivities of the soldiers. The masive mandate given by veterans & masses have made them arrogant. How else can one interpret the advice given by Defence Minister Jaitley to ex-servicemen to lower their expectations? Would he have dared to say so before the elections? Modi promised OROP and not sham-OROP.
National interests are supreme to soldiers. It would have been far better for the government to state that – “We accept the established definition of OROP but are tight on finances at present. We will implement it for JCOs and OR immediately with the available resources. Give us some time to implement it for the officers.” Most soldiers would have accepted such a suggestion. It is again proved that grace and compassion are not the qualities that generally associates with the politicians.
It is better to be late than never to watch the writing on the wall.The results of three bye-elections in Uttarakhand are out and BJP has been trounced, with Congress bagging all the three seats. It has taken less than 60 days for Modi euphoria to disappear. A buoyed and rejuvenated Congress must be thanking BJP for its failure to deliver. Inapt handling of the issue of OROP is symptomatic of the poor performance.  The NDA government had succumbed to the pressure of the bureaucrats after the budget speech of 10 July,and it became apparent with the diluted the concept of OROP. It was a breach of faith to almost all soldiers, both serving and retired, – A promise broken and a Great Betrayal.
 According to the reports, all soldiers and their families voted for Congress in the recent bye-polls in Uttarakhand. BJP and Modi should see the writing on the wall. They must realise that they are shooting in their own foot by losing the backing of the solid support base of soldiers and ex-servicemen. Time is fast running out. Elections to Haryana, and may be Delhi, are due shortly. One will not be surprised if BJP loses in all assembly segments of Ghaziabad which elected General VK Singh with over 5.67 lakh votes. Disillusionment with BJP is spreading rapidly amongst the soldiers and the veterans.
