    veterans walk out of meet with Army chief
    The government’s efforts to break the deadlock over the demand for implementation of the One Rank-One Pension (OROP) scheme saw another failure on Thursday night. During a meeting with Army Chief General Dalbir Singh, the ex-servicemen’s representatives walked out over disagreement regarding the proposed annual hike in pension and the date of implementation of the revised pensions. The veterans also threatened to intensify their agitation. Some of them have already rejected the government’s invitation for celebrations marking 50 years of the 1965 war, which begin Friday. On receiving a message from Army Chief General Dalbir Singh, Maj Gen (retd) Satbir Singh and Lt Gen (retd) Balbir Singh reached South Block at about 7 pm… They waited for Nripendra Misra, principal secretary, PMO, but he was busy. The meeting was attended by a joint secretary in the PMO… The disagreement persisted over the annual hike. The government has been offering an increase every five years, while we are demanding three per cent hike every year. The government has agreed to our demand of considering 2013-14 as base year for the proposed revision in pension,” said Colonel (retd) Anil Kaul, spokesperson of United Front of Ex Servicemen. Meanwhile, two other veterans were admitted to the hospital Thursday after their health condition deteriorated due to the hunger strike.
