NEW DELHI: Defence Minister Manohar Parrikar has conveyed the NDA government's "unequivocal commitment" in implementing 'One Rank One Pension' (OROP) when a delegation of ex-servicemen, who are on a strike for past 19 days pressing for its execution, met him.
Not happy with Parrikar's assurance, the agitating ex-servicemen said the question of ending the protest does not arise without a government announcement on implementing the long-pending demand.
"A six member delegation of United Front of Ex-Servicemen (UFESM) met the Defence Minister last night. Parrikar conveyed unequivocal commitment of the party (BJP)and the government towards implementation of OROP," said Col (retd) Anil Kaul, spokesman of the Front.
