Addressing the media, Major General Satbir Singh, Chairman of the Indian Ex-Servicemen Movement and advisor to the United Front of Ex-Servicemen, along with Randeep Singh Surjewala, the Congress spokesperson, accused Modi of lying.
"While pension of Army men has been increased, the issues pertaining to OROP are still pending," he said.
"Modi has been lying in his election speeches about fulfilling all the demands on OROP. However, the grave reality is that the soldiers are still fighting for their rights," he said.
The press conference was also addressed by retired Group Captain V.K. Gandhi who accused the Modi government of politicizing the surgical strike on terrorist camps in Pakistan and thus disrespecting the Indian Army.
Surgical strikes have been happening earlier too "but the Modi government is politicizing this", he said.
