OROP is “Only Rahul, Only Priyanka” for Congress: Amit Shah

Giving a navel expansion to the acronym for ‘One Rank, One Pension’ scheme, BJP president Amit Shah said, ‘For the Congress, OROP means ‘Only Rahul, Only Priyanka’. The BJP president gave the sarcastic expansion while addressing a ‘BJP Panna Pramuk Sammelan’ at Hamirpur, also known as ‘Martyrs’ Land’ owing to the large population of the district and adjoining areas working in the Army.

The BJP president made the jibe days after induction of the party president Rahul Gandhi’s sister Priyanka Gandhi as the Congress general secretary for the eastern Uttar Pradesh.

Addressing BJP workers ahead of the 2019 Lok Sabha polls, Shah said, ‘Desh ek Majboot Sarkar chahta hai, majboor sarkar nahi. (The country wants a strong government not a weak and helpless one). ‘The country wants a government which can give Pakistan a befitting reply for killing its soldiers.’ Shah said.

‘The Modi government implemented OROP for ex-servicemen in the true sense. No one cared for soldiers for over 70 years, when the Modi government came to power, it implemented the OROP.’ he added.

Amit Shah Slammed Congress for not working for decades

BJP Supremo said, ‘In his speeches, the Congress president nowadays brings up the issue of poverty. I just want to ask Rahul baba what the Congress governments did for decades to eradicate poverty. It’s only the BJP government which is taking measures to eradicate it.’ he added.

‘They couldn’t provide even a gas cylinder to each household in the country.’ he said. Himachal got only Rs 44,325 Crores from the 13th Finance Commission during the Congress government, while the Modi government gave Rs 1,15,865 Crores to this hilly state, he added.

On the contrary, the Himachal residents now feel that the Jai Ram Thakur-led BJP government is their own government, he said, adding a total of 20,062 complaints out of 25,227 have been redressed in Jan Manch programmes launched by the Thakur government.
