Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal accused the BJP of resorting to ‘gundagardi’ (hooliganism) by detaining deputy chief minister Manish Sisodia and Congress vice-president Rahul Gandhi. Both leaders had attempted to meet the family of the ex-serviceman who had committed suicide late Tuesday night over the implementation of the ‘One Rank One Pension’ (OROP) scheme.

“Is meeting an aggrieved family politics or is seeking votes on account of surgical strikes politics?” asked Kejriwal in comments to reporters. He added that he had to postpone a cabinet meeting because of the detention of the deputy chief minister. Both Sisodia and Gandhi, who were barred from entering the RML hospital premises in central Delhi, were released after a brief detention.

“Should I not meet the grieving family if someone has committed suicide in my state?…PM says OROP has been implemented, but the soldiers are killing themselves over it. That means the PM is lying,” the AAP leader said. He is scheduled to meet the family of the ex-serviceman in Bhiwani.

Gandhi was also angry at the cops for detaining family members of the ex-serviceman.

“Do you not feel ashamed? He is a son of an army veteran… and you are arresting them?” Gandhi asked police officials at the Mandir Marg station where he was briefly held as well. He had requested the cops to release the family members of the ex-army jawan.

Ram Kishan Grewal, the deceased, had committed suicide by drinking poison on the lawns behind a government building in central Delhi. A family member has alleged that the cops manhandled them when the family was in trauma.

        That man who committed suicide qas not eligible to get OROP as he worked for 6 years in Army. You have to work for 15 years to get benefits of OROP but shameless politicians loke Kejri and Pappu have politicized the issue. Indja deserves better and sensible people in opposition. Modi has got a irresponsible opposition whose leaders support Pak,qestion Army's integrity. Indians must reject these antinationals.

                          Why the most corrupt Congress Party could not implement OROP during their rule of more than 60 years? OROP is a complex matter which is being resolved by the Modi Govt. on priority.
