It was anticipated that he would announce the implementation of the scheme in his Independence Day speech on Saturday, but Modi only repeated his government’s stand.
“No time or commitment for OROP is extremely disappointing. Don’t understand the nitty-gritty, but this is about people who lay their lives for us,” tweeted @rashminp.

Retired naval-officer-turned-writer Vikram Waman Karve also took to Twitter and said: “What is surprising is that national party like BJP has alienated military veterans due to bungling of #OROP issue.”

Writer Suhel Seth echoed similar views, and insisted that the government should announce a date for implementation.

“The government should announce a date and not just enduring intent on One Rank One Pension. Red Fort is now a fort of promises. Not action,” Seth tweeted.

“Am deeply disappointed and pretty disgusted that yet again we’ve only paid lip service to our veterans. It’s a shame. And tragic. #OROP,” he added.

“It is a bloody shame that MPs and bureaucrats constantly give themselves a raise but don’t care for veterans. We take them for granted.”

“Modi is doing everything to not come to power for a second term. No OROP announcement. No announcement for farmers,” @halsatyagrah, another micro-blogging site user, said.

Another user @DMarcusAntonius tweeted: “Implement #OROP. If we can’t even take care of our soldiers and war heroes.. do we even deserve to be safe?”

“If OROP is not immediately implemented, it will lead to unrest in armed forces,” @bb_sharma tweeted.

“Today’s speech is the first speech in which he lacks confidence. Recent parliament issues, OROP and many others have brought down his confidence,” @rocksy1234 said.

“I am assuring again, it is not a person speaking, I am speaking on the behalf of 125 crore people, under the tricolour, from the ramparts of Red Fort… In principle we have accepted One Rank One Pension. The phase of discussions is on,” Modi said in his speech.

Ex-servicemen protested in the national capital on Saturday, shouting “shame, shame” after Modi did not announce the scheme’s implementation.

After facing backlash from its users, Google announced on Twitter that it will test more variations and changes to the desktop search results.

Last week, Google introduced a new design for desktop Search that adds site afavicons’ to every result which did not go well with users.

A ‘favicon’, also known as a shortcut icon, website icon, tab icon, URL icon, or bookmark icon, is a file containing one or more small icons, associated with a particular website or web page.

In a tweet, Google said it has heard the feedback from users.

“Last week we updated the look of Search on desktop to mirror what’s been on mobile for months. We’ve heard your feedback about the update. We always want to make Search better, so we’re going to experiment with new placements for favicons,” the tech company tweeted late Friday.

“Our experimenting will begin today. Over the coming weeks, while we test, some might not see favicons while some might see them in different placements as we look to bring a modern look to desktop Search,” Google added.

Not just SEOs and SEMs but a wider set of searchers and Google users criticized the desktop Search changes.

“Our early tests of the design for desktop were positive. But we appreciate the feedback, the trust people place in Google, and we’re dedicated to improving the experience,” said Google.

“Web publishers have also told us they like having their brand iconography on the search results page. We are experimenting with a change to the current desktop favicons, and will continue to iterate on the design over time,” it added. (IANS)
