Following the lead set by defence veterans, ex-paramilitary personnel are planning to hold a dharna at Jantar Mantar to press for their demand of One Rank One Pension, JVS Choudhary, a member of the central coordination committee of ex-central paramilitary forces servicemen told HT.

Choudhary, who retired as DIG in the Indo-Tibetan Border Police, said a representation from the paramilitary forces was made to the 7th Pay Commission as well as to the Parliamentary Standing Committee on Home Affairs pressing for OROP for retired personnel from paramilitary forces as well.

“We have not heard about anything from the government... We believe the government will listen to ex-paramilitary personnel only when they take the route taken by the defence veterans — holding a protest at the Jantar Mantar. We will meet soon and decide the course of action to be followed during the dharna,” he said.
