Govt is committed to One rank- One pension for ex servicemen: PM


Prime Minister Narendra Modi has said that his government is committed to One Rank One Pension (OROP) for ex-servicemen and no one should have any doubts about its implementation. In an exclusive interview to The Tribune newspaper, Mr Modi said, Congress is politicizing the issue. He said, the previous governments do not have the right to speak about it because they did nothing when they were in power. Mr Modi said, the government is in constant discussions with the armed forces personnel to arrive at a please-all definition of OROP of which there are varied versions.

In a 45-minute interview, the Prime Minister answered a host of questions ranging from politics to foreign policy, and also about the need for a dedicated Central cadre of officers for the Union Government to ensure continuity and homogeneity in service.

On the contentious Land Acquisition Bill, Mr Modi said not even one decision taken about the Bill is anti-farmer. The Prime Minister attacked the Congress for terming the Bill as anti farmer. He said, those who used the old law and forced three lakh farmers to commit suicides do not have even one per cent moral right to talk about farmers.

The Prime Minister also reacted to Rahul Gandhi's "suit boot ki sarkar" jibe describing the remark as a reflection of opposition's bankruptcy of ideas. He said, Opposition could not find one concrete issue to criticize the government in this one year, which is our most important success.

Citing the example of coal block auctions, Mr Modi made an oblique reference to his predecessor Manmohan Singh who continues to be questioned for his silence through coal and spectrum scams. He said, it is not enough for the Prime Minister alone to be honest and he must display zero tolerance to corruption every moment through his tone, tenor, policy, practice.

Assuring strict implementation of anti-black money laws, Mr Modi slammed the Congress for repeatedly questioning his government's intention. He said, names of black money holders could not be disclosed except to the Supreme Court due to international legal obligations. The Prime Minister said, the government will not spare anyone holding black money.

On his foreign policy thrust, the Prime Minister said he saw India as a global player and not a balancing power. Mr Modi said, New Delhi will engage on an equal footing with China and America.

The Prime Minister said, he would keep humanism at the core of his relations with the neighbouring countries as displayed in respect of the Nepal disaster, the Yemen evacuation, the successful negotiation to save five Indian fishermen on death row in Sri Lanka and the supply of drinking water to the Maldives.
