Committed to one rank one pension: Modi

New Delhi:  Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Saturday said that his government is "committed" to the long-awaited One Rank One Pension (OROP) for ex-servicemen.

"On OROP- the government is committed to OROP and there's no doubt about it," Modi said in a tweet.

OROP relates to payment of uniform pension to defence forces personnel retiring in the same rank with the same length of service, irrespective of their date of retirement.

In another tweet, Modi said that there was not a single instance of corruption during one year of his government.

"I can say with pride that there has not been a single instance of corruption," PM said while posting a link of an interview he gave to The Tribune newspaper.

On corruption free administration, Modi said: "Way to achieve this is to lay down policy on everything in black and white. Grey areas should be minimal."

There has to be "zero tolerance" on corruption at the top, the prime minister said.

"From the potential I have seen in the country, I believe there is no logic in it staying poor and underdeveloped," Modi said in a series of tweets.

Saying "farmer is the backbone" of our nation, Modi tweeted: "We need to modernise agriculture to improve productivity and quality."

In another tweet, he said: "Amazed at the response that I received for Swachh Bharat Mission, it was beyond my imagination."
