One Rank One Pension – Rahul Gandhi is doing politics over this issue : BJP
Centre committed to implementing ‘One Rank One Pension’ policy: BJP
Criticising Congress vice-president Rahul Gandhi for politicising the ‘One Rank One Pension’ issue, the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) on Saturday said the Centre is committed to its implementation.
“Our government is committed to the implementation of the ‘One Rank One Pension’ policy. Finance Minister Arun Jaitley and the Defence Minister have clarified in the last two days that modalities involved the implementation of this have been worked out and it will soon be a reality. Rahul Gandhi is doing politics over this issue but he will not succeed,” BJP spokesperson G V L Narasimha Rao told ANI.
Rahul Gandhi had earlier in the day met ex-servicemen at the AICC headquarters in New Delhi. After the meeting, he said that his party would mount pressure on the NDA Government to implement the scheme at the earliest.
