V.K. Singh’s daughter Mrinalini joins OROP protesters

Minister of State for External Affairs and former Army chief V.K. Singh’s daughter Mrinalini Singh on Sunday joined a protest at Jantar Mantar by ex-servicemen against the delay in the implementation of ‘One Rank One Pension’ (OROP) scheme.



Demanding a speedy resolution to the contentious issue, she said: “I am here to support the cause of ex-servicemen because I too am an ex-serviceman’s daughter. I feel that the OROP should be implemented as soon as possible.



“Even my grandfather was a soldier, and may be my son would also become one. I hope the government will soon heed to this demand. It’s long overdue. I did take up the issue with my father. He has written a letter to the Prime Minister,” she said.
