October 27, 2016: Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal on Wednesday attacked the Narendra Modi government, calling it “anti-army” and accusing him of “just using” the army’s sacrifices for political gains.

NewsGram brings to you latest new stories in India.

He further added that the central government has given the Special Investigation Team (SIT), formed to investigate the anti-Sikh riots, “another” extension.

A few days back, a media report stated that the armed forces were disappointed with the letters issued by the Defense Ministry regarding their rank differences and their civilian counterparts.

AAP’s convener, Kejriwal responded to the report in his tweet by saying- “Weak OROP, reduction in disability pension and now this. Isn’t Modi government anti-army? They just milch (sic) army’s sacrifices for political gains.”

According to the report, the rank of the army officers would be brought down as compared to their earlier status, after the circular issued by the Defense Ministry. The OROP (One Rank One Pension) would grant an equal pension to the retired armed forces personnel as well as to the officers who are retiring now.

The government has recently changed the disability pension, which was equal to the last drawn salary of the Indian soldiers for 100% disability and has reduced their pension by a huge amount. However, the Defense Ministry asked the Anomaly Committee of the 7th Pay Commission to withhold the system and continue the old system.

In another tweet, Kejriwal questioned the government over the SIT investigation of 1984 riots. He tweeted, “Extension after extension. Zero result till now. Obviously, there is no intention (to bring justice). Intention is to save culprits of 1984 riots.”

The SIT was initially given six months to file the report in February 2015. Since then, two extensions have been provided to the team. According to the media report, the SIT has been given another extension till February 2017.
