OROP means 'Only Rahul, Only Priyanka': BJP chief

Una (Himachal Pradesh)


BJP President Amit Shah on Monday took a jibe at Congress President Rahul Gandhi and his sister Priyanka Vadra by equating them with 'One Rank, One Pension' or OROP scheme for the armed forces.

Addressing a grassroots-level convention named Panna Pramukh Sammelan here, Shah said for the Congress OROP means "Only Rahul" and "Only Priyanka".

His comments came a few days after Priyanka Gandhi was named the Congress General Secretary in charge of eastern Uttar Pradesh.

"The nation again requires a 'mazboot sarkar' (strong government) instead of a 'mazboor sarkar' (helpless government) so that the country forges ahead on the path of progress and prosperity."-IANS
