Priyanka slams Modi government over OROP
Congress General Secretary Priyanka Gandhi on Friday accused the Narendra Modi government of politicising the Armed Forces by calling the one rank one pension (OROP) a favour to them.
The Congress General Secretary was holding a roadshow while campaigning for his party’s Kanpur candidate Sriprakash Jaiswal here. She kicked off her roadshow from Ghantaghar area and concluded it at Bada Chauraha after covering a distance of five kms.
Addressing party supporters at the Phoolbagh crossing, she said, “When I was coming here from the airport, there were lots of posters and hoardings along the way. One of the hoardings that read ‘Sena ko OROP ka uphaar’ (OROP gift to the armed forces) got me thinking.
