Rahul Gandhi Lok Sabha Elections 2019
Congress president Rahul Gandhi gave assurance to a group of ex-servicemen that Congress-led government would fulfil all the commitments the party had made on the 'one rank, one pension' issue.
At a meeting with the retired defence personnel, Rahul Gandhi said if Congress is voted to power in 2019 Lok Sabha election, it will fulfil their demands, including 'one rank, one pension'(OROP).
Talking about the Rafale fighter jet deal issue, he said the Narendra Modi government handed out Rs 30,000 crore to industrialist Anil Ambani but refused to meet the demands of the soldiers on OROP. He attacks Modi government and said the amount of Rs 30,000 crore was more than enough to solve the OROP issue.
The Congress is accusing Modi government of giving favour to the company led by Anil Ambani on the offset contract of the Rafale deal. However, the private firm has denied the allegations.
