ANSWER: One Rank One Pension
OROP is a long standing demand of ex-servicemen. The scheme will grant retired armed forces personnel pension parity with officers and jawans of the same rank who are retiring now. Joining ex servicemen in their protest, Mr Hazare warned the government to not go back on their promise to implement the OROP scheme. He also said war widows get a meager amount as pension in present times. The social activist said he will travel to other parts of the country to raise the issue and launch an indefinite fast on October 2 at Ramlila Ground.
