    The above statement is a "STATEMENT OUT OF CONTEXT". OROP and DEMONETIZATION has no link and relevance with one another.

    The exservicemen are the disciplined body not only in uniform but even while we draw pension.

    Let any one head the government; that is not our look after.

    Yes, demonitization has difficulty for every citizen personaly and collectively.

    BUT is there not any benefit for the citizen due to demonitisation at all?????

    with out struggle and pain what can we achieve in life?

    First time the nation is faced with an opportunity to struggle together after independance struggle; it may be pain for a small time.

    let us do it well with out murmur and complaints – JAI HIND.

  • Almost all the arrears paid under OROP has now been taken back by the Modi Government as a result of demonetisation!!! This is the way PM Modigi has fulfilled his promises to Ex-servicemen!!!!????
