Announcement of OROP disappointing, govt playing politics with ex-servicemen: Congress

New Delhi, Sep 05 (ANI): Congress party on Saturday said that the announcement of OROP by Defence Minister Manohar Parrikar was disappointing. Former Defence Minister AK Antony said that the OROP was a scheme initiated by UPA.

He stated that UPA was always sincere for ex-servicemen adding that no government has increased the pension of servicemen as UPA government. Congress leader Kapil Sibal said that the way BJP government has said that after 4 decades it has taken the initiative of implementing OROP, it is an insult as UPA had already accepted its implementation.

Sibal further said that Congress party is with the demands of the ex-servicemen adding that the government is playing politics with the servicemen who guard the nation.
