What is the current problem with OROP implementation which could have led to this suicide?
There are conflicting reports about the sad demise of the veteran. Some seem to suggest that he was perturbed about non-release of the approved pension under the OROP scheme by his bank. If that is the case, then it is really unfortunate since that would mean that an amount legally approved by the government was not disbursed to him.
Government is implementing OROP but what about the larger veteran demand that what they have got is one rank many pensions, not one rank one pension?
What about disability pensions and the controversy on downgrading of status? How does that square with the pedestal armed forces are being put on?
Chest thumping and governmental downgrading can’t go hand in hand. Does government’s left hand not know what it is doing?
What kind of reforms do we need to fix the problems in MoD?
