The OROP agitation was being carried out for the last three months under the banner of United Front of Ex-Servicemen (UFESM) with Lt-Gen (retd) Balbir Singh, the president of IESL and Major-General (retd) Satbir Singh, chairman of Indian Ex-Servicemen Movement (IESM) as the two main lead negotiators who negotiated with the government.

“We have informed the UFESM about our decision to withdraw. The movement is no longer cohesive. While we will continue to fight to resolve the sticking points in the implementation of OROP as announced by the government, we are against the stir taking a political color,” said Lt-Gen (retd) Balbir Singh, as per TOI report.

Lt-Gen (retd) Balbir Singh added that his organization is completely apolitical and is against veterans holding a rally in Bihar that will shortly go to polls.

Meanwhile, UFESM is scheduled to hold a major “Sainik Ekta” rally on September 12 in Jantar Mantar.
