 VETERANS TAKE OROP ISSUE TO INTERNATIONAL ATTENTION
CHANDIGARH: After holding a hunger strike outside the Indian embassy in London on Vijay Diwas marking the Kargil victory on July 26, Punjabi NRIs are planning a worldwide campaign to press for the implementation of one rank one pension (OROP) for retired armed forces personnel from mid-August.
Several NRIs from the UK, US and some parts of the Middle East are already on board to highlight the issue in their countries in a bid to garner international support and put pressure on the Indian government to "honour its promise". Prime Minister Narendra had raised hopes of the war veterans by promising to implement OROP during the 2014 Lok Sabha election campaigning.
London-based NRI Harpreet Singh said, "Our veteran soldiers have been sitting on relay hunger strike for over a month now in support of OROP. They are asking the government to give a concrete timeline. NRIs all over the world are concerned and feeling pained about the developments and therefore thought of coming together in support of the soldiers."
"A detailed schedule for a widespread campaign in different countries is being finalized before launching it in two weeks as there is strong sentiments on the issue among NRIs settled in different countries. In fact, NRIs from other Indian states too are joining in. We have made an appeal to every NRI to support our veterans and join this campaign in support of OROP in big numbers," said Dr Gurmeet Singh, another Punjabi based in London.
"We have written open letters to Prime Minister Modi, besides running a social media campaign on Twitter to highlight the issue with all the details that one needs to know about the history of OROP. For instance, in March 2015 the government committed that OROP will be implemented in three months. But there is still no sign of it," added Jagdeep Lohan, who is supporting the cause in the UK.
