"I am 93-years-old and I can die any day but I assure you that it will not happen before I get you justice from Supreme Court," he said.

Senior Supreme Court lawyer Ram Jethmalani today assured the ex-servicemen demanding “complete implementation” of ‘One Rank One Pension’ that he will lead their legal battle in the apex court.
“I am 93-years-old and I can die any day but I assure you that it will not happen before I get you justice from Supreme Court,” Mr. Jethmalani said while addressing armed forces veterans staging protest at Jantar Mantar in the national capital.
Major General (retd) Satbir Singh, leader of the protesting veterans, claimed that a case would be filed by Mr. Jethmalani on the OROP demand in the Supreme Court in the next 3-4 days and that Mr. Jethmalani would not charge any fee.
Mr. Jethmalani, who has been fighting a legal case over the issue of black money in SC since 2009, also lashed out at the Narendra Modi government for “failing” to bring back black money stashed away abroad.
“Modi promised to bring back black money from foreign countries and I believed him but he fooled me. But when German government offered to disclose the names of such bank account holders, no one from India approached it,” he claimed.

Singh said four more cases have been filed in the armed forces tribunal.
“These cases pertain to rulings for Jawans, war widows, arrears since 2006, payments for honourary ranks, rounding off of disability pension, and payments of reservists,” he said.
The veterans’ protest at Jantar Mantar entered its 320th day on Friday.
Defence Minister Manohar Parrikar had in September last year announced implementation of the long delayed OROP for ex-servicemen but the veterans have been continuing with their protest demanding “complete” implementation of the scheme.

  7. Groups in the Armed Forces like Gp X and Gp Y should be abolished after retirement because Ex Soldier is only known by ranks and not by gp. Gps should only be applicable for serving Soldier because they contribute during service for particular gp. Removal of gp after retirement will automatically solve the problem of disparity in pension among ex Soldiers. So finally, I humbly request to do it, in SC.
