Subramanian Swamy lashes out on Rahul Gandhi’s accusations against Modi
Subramanian Swamy lashes out on Rahul Gandhi’s accusations against Narendra Modi over the delay in the implementation of the One Rank, One Pension (OROP) scheme. The BJP leader Swamy said that the “uneducated” Congress Vice President should read about army service scheme.
“Just making blank statements only shows that the man doesn’t apply his mind. I don’t think he knows how to read and write. Ask him to go and read what OROP is. When the Defence Ministry issued it…it covered what OROP covers. I think he is not an educated person, so he makes these kinds of rumours by somebody telling him, some briefing him. They do half briefing and he makes a fool of himself,” Swamy told to a media house.
Yesterday Gandhi alleged that the government is disrespecting the soldiers by not fulfilling their long term demands. And Gandhi had met the ex-servicemen protesting at the Jantar Mantar against the government’s lackadaisical approach to the OROP scheme.
“The Prime Minister has been boasting about implementing OROP, if it is true then why are the ex-servicemen agitating at the Jantar Mantar? Why are they protesting here for the last 509 days?” asked Gandhi. He added, “But the truth is that the government has not implemented the OROP.”
