Congress, BJP ridicule each other over announcement of OROP

New Delhi, Sep 06 (ANI): Congress and BJP on Sunday ridiculed each other over the implementation of One Rank One Pension (OROP) scheme. The central government announced the implementation of the scheme yesterday and the defence minister stated that the OROP will be implemented from July 01, 2014 onwards and that the personnel taking voluntary retirement will not be included.

Congress leaders said that the OROP announced for retired military veterans as 'a betrayal' of the ex-servicemen's demands and said the scheme was 'totally disappointing'. However, BJP dubbed the congress as 'unjust' and said that the latter should apologise for doing nothing for the ex-servicemen over OROP scheme.
