OROP Issue:Ex-Serviceman Meet Jaitley
A group of ex-servicemen today met Finance Minister Arun Jaitley to convey to him their concern over the much-delayed 'One Rank One Pension' scheme which is expected to benefit about 22 lakh retired defence personnel.
"The talks were positive and he listened to our concern. He said he will continue the deliberation on the issue," Maj Gen Satbir Singh (Retd) said after the meeting.
Singh told reporters that the planned rally on June 14 followed by a hunger strike the next day will continue.
