Congress vice-president Rahul Gandhi met ex-servicemen in the national capital on Friday, keeping up his campaign on the cause of ‘one rank, one pension’ (OROP) which is back in limelight after the suicide by a former army man. The Congress vice-president was detained by the Delhi Police on Thursday for the third time in two days after he tried to lead a protest march over the suicide by ex-serviceman Ram Kishan Grewal allegedly due to his grievances in implementation of OROP.

After meeting ex-servicemen, Rahul Gandhi said it’s not a money matter, but about respect and justice. “Can’t understand what’s happening in the country, no respect for farmers and no respect for our ex-servicemen. Ex-servicemen said if government tells them that they can’t do anything, nobody will have an issue,” he said.

Rahul demanded that the government apologise to the family members of the late ex-servicemen. “The family members of the late ex-serviceman were beaten and dragged, this is not right. The government must apologise. Why have ex-servicemen been standing here at Jantar Mantar for the past 509 days? that’s because our government has not implemented OROP.”

Narendra Modi Ji you should stop lying and work to implement. 60-80 experienced people (ex-servicemen) were there; they said that what Modiji is calling #OROP is only pension enhancement,” added Gandhi.

            Tiberius Julius Abdes Pantera (c. 22 BC – AD 40) was a Roman soldier whose tombstone was found in Bingerbrück, Germany, in 1859.lt;br/gt;lt;br/gt;Based on the claim of the ancient Greek philosopher Celsus, Jesus was born as a result of an affair between his mother Mary and a Roman soldier. He said she was \"convicted of adultery and had a child by a soldier named Panthera\". Tiberius Pantera could have been serving in the region at the time of Jesus\'s conception. Both the ancient Talmud and medieval Jewish writings and sayings reinforced this notion, referring to Jesus as \"Yeshu ben Pantera\" (Jesus, son of Pantera).

                              Gutter politics by Rahul G and Congress - as usual. Congress and Rahul hi did not implement OROP when they were in power for 10 years - 2004 to 2014. Now that Modi Sarkar has implemented OROP he is suddenly remembering about it. He is exploiting the death of an ex serviceman who happens to be a Congress party worker. (Maut ka tamasha bana diya). The media agents of Congress are on over drive in falsely stating that the suicide committed by the ex serviceman was because of OROP. Congi Slave, Kejri- apptards and the chor and goonda parties ( JDU, SP, TC, Communists) are anti nationals

                                  Ex serviceman did not commit suicide but killed by Congressmen. The way Shree Rajesh Piolot, Shri. Madhav rao Scindia killed for hi family's benefit. Congress is devoid of any issue so deliberately making issue out of nothing to defame Government. Congress still in no mood to improve itself rather doing all dirty old tricks i.e divide and rule.

                                      Let us take Rahul hi lightly.Tomorrow he will jump to another issue forgetting what he thinks on OROP. Rahul hi and Arvind Kejriwal want to remain in limelight and get publicity even it is negative one.AK has no work except barks at Narendra Modi 24x7x365 forgetting he is CM of Delhi.

                                        All ex-Servicemen very well know including 70-year-old ex-serviceman Ram Kishan Grewal who has committed suicide recently that it is only Narendra Modi Govt that has implemented OROP as promised before coming to power. When Congress Party in power at centre for 40 years it failed to do so.Had Congress Party been to power again in 2014 then ex-Servicemen would not have received OROP till Congress Party in Power. Therefore, all Ex-servicemen must thankful to Modi Govt and must be careful about Rahul hi and his Congress Party which want to provoke and misguide them.Further Congress Party while in power made provision of only Rs.500 Crores as against Rs 13000-15000 Crores on OROP and that too for the financial year 2014-15 when it was sure it would not come to power.No doubt day by day Rahul hi is becoming restless over Modi Govt and that is why he always rushes to such incidences to regain sympathy of public which he is not going to get after seeing his activities in blocking GST Bill and many other bills as well as stalling Rajya Sabha Proceeding for two sessions in 2015 without ping any bill which were supposed to be useful for development of India and improve our economy.

                                          If anyone has no right to comment on OROP,it is Pappu. OROP is a huve burden on exchequer. In 5 years,govt will spend about 55000 crore on OROP. The govt has to spend on modernization,D,weapons. Few selfish mercenaries who used to work in armed forces to get everything. Were they soldiers? Should the govt not spend on education,health,roads,railways or any devopmental activity? Why can-t these selfish greedy man think about other common men who don't get a penny as pension? They want everything. Even a committee is looking into some issues. Shameless politicians like dimwit Pappuji and tinpot socialist Khujliji are trying to score brownie points. This has only exposed them. 99 percent of veterans are happy with Modi's OROP. This disgusting politics by shameless men must end.
