Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Saturday said that his government is “committed” to the long awaited One Rank One Pension (OROP) for ex-servicemen.

“On OROP- the government is committed to OROP and there’s no doubt about it,” Modi said in a tweet.

OROP relates to the payment of uniform pension to defence forces personnel retiring in the same rank with the same length of service, irrespective of their date of retirement.

In another tweet, Modi said that there was not a single instance of corruption during one year of his government.

“I can say with pride that there has not been a single instance of corruption,” said the Prime Minister while posting the link of an interview he gave to The Tribune newspaper.

On corruption free administration Modi said, “Way to achieve this is to lay down policy on everything in black and white. Grey areas should be minimal. There has to be ‘zero tolerance’ on corruption.” “From the potential I have seen in the country, I believe there is no logic in it staying poor and underdeveloped,” Modi said in a series of tweets.

Adding that “farmer is the backbone” of our nation, Modi tweeted, “We need to modernise agriculture to improve productivity and quality.” Followed by another tweet,”Amazed at the response that I received for Swachh Bharat Mission, it was beyond my imagination.”

Twitter CEO Counters the Criticism From The New York Times

Picking out a quote where Haberman said people were tweeting more and she felt she had to check in more frequently lest she miss something, the CEO said this is why the "show me the best tweets first" feature exists, a feature that is hated by many users.

Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey hit back at Maggie Haberman — a New York Times journalist — who wrote about her break from the app, explaining why it has become an unbearable experience for her and others.

In Haberman’s Friday’s tweet, she describes how Twitter has gotten worse and worse in many regards over the years, developing into an unreliable source filled with toxic interactions and bitter criticism, Mashable reported on Saturday.

Replying to her on Saturday, Dorsey responded to specific points that Haberman made in a thread.

Picking out a quote where Haberman said people were tweeting more and she felt she had to check in more frequently lest she miss something, the CEO said this is why the “show me the best tweets first” feature exists, a feature that is hated by many users.

He then cherry-picked another part of Haberman’s piece that said, “Twitter is still an important source for news”, which the Twitter CEO of course agreed on, and then had a vaguely self-deprecating response to a quote in which Haberman said “Twitter is not a good platform to have meaningful discussions”.

Throughout his thread, Dorsey brings up “identifying credibility” a couple of times, which may refer to changing how the verification system works so it’s not just for prominent names, people in media, and white supremacists, or maybe being more selective. (IANS)
