All salute to Mr Chandrasekhar for his immense effort. But what is translating now is not OROP and at the time the slide and degradation of the armed forces cannot be arrested by a third party warrior. Beggars are not choosers and its time to keep the flame burning till the parity and self respect is resolved / reverted back.


Really appreciate the views of Mr Rajeev Chandrasekhar. The Armd Forces was degraded and their pensions were brought down in 1973 in less than two years time after the Indian Army achieved the second biggest surrender in the Military history. Instead of rewarding them they have been punished. OROP will correct it to some extent. How can Police or Railways claim OROP? Do they retire at the age of 35, do they work under hostile conditions, do they know anything about the war and what it cost? Criminals are jumping the jails well guarded by Police whereas the Army is preventing the infiltration by better armed terrorists. Can their services be compared? It is only the Armd Forces which needs the OROP.
