Dear Mr Sehrawat and all the Veteran Friends,
I am distressed to go through this misleading mail worked out to defame the Most patriotic community of the nation. A community that is ever ready to Sacrifice every thing including their lives for the unity integrity and Independence of the motherland. How sad. Coming from people who have done nothing but plundered the nation makes it disgusting.
I must tell you that i am the author of this concept of OROP. I was the first Man to take it up with Indiraji on 22 feb 1982. After that pursued it all the time and am still at it. We were instrumental for every step taken by successive Govts. If i said that the history of my association is the history of the welfare Measures by the govts i would not be exaggerating. You should therefore grant Me that i should know more about this matter than you who has sent this pack Of lies and half truths in the shape of misleading presentation for us to swallow...

The email click here, by Lt Col Inderjit Singh, Chairman All India Ex-Services Welfare Association, New Delhi, has been written in response to an email by some pseudo-ESM, definitely a chamcha of the Babus. The facts stated by Colonel Inderjit Singh are true and forms an exhaustive FAQ on OROP. Col Inderjit Singh is from Grenadiers, a course mate of Gen YN Sharma, Former Army Commander.
On behalf of YOU ALL, ‘i’ thank Colonel Inderjit Singh, for giving such valuable information. A few emails received in response to the email of Colonel Inderjit Singh are also reproduced below.

Subject: Veteran Inderjit Singh on OROP
Dear Col Inderjit,
One of the strategies adopted by the bureaucracy to deal with 'opponents', is to 'carpet bomb' the environment with misquoted and confusing presentations. This too, not direct, all the time, but through 'prompts' and 'selective leaks'. Numerous ghost writers and friendly media reports start sprouting to create a 'public opinion' and thus perhaps bring 'pressure' to bear on the 'other side'. (It is sad that ANY problem whatsoever, is first allowed to brew to uncontrolled proportions through inept handling, and then when it becomes BIG, draconian methods including use of Army are recommended and 'forced' through the 'pressure tactics'. Who suffers? Us, as a nation. Who NEVER faces accountability? You got it- The Babu).
Typical of this strategy, we recently had one DK Sahrawat, writing some disjointed bit of sad logic (The sarcasm in the title line could not be missed) 'Tum Mujhe Khoon Do Main Tumhe OROP doonga" to discredit the OROP movement catching steam.
Response to this silly piece of literature from angry Defence veterans was swift, All facets, including the text, tone and tenor are hostile, irrelevant and baseless.
A mail from Col Inderjit Singh in response is forwarded for information. It provides an insight into 'The Story so far' ...
With Warm Regards,
Col RP Chaturvedi,

Dear Col Inderjit Singh,
Please accept my congratulations for an excellent brief on the history of the struggle for OROP, which you pioneered and championed so long ago. As I have mentioned earlier, and I do so again, you have been an iconic figure for us in the IESM; we have only built upon what you had achieved. Despite our differences at times, our respect for your efforts has endured and the current brief has strengthened it further.
Regards & God Bless,
Maj Gen PK Renjen

Dear & Respected Col Inderjit, Sir,
Just read through your paper/letter on OROP which U wrote in reply to Sehrawat (whoever he is?).
The paper has been so very educative & an 'eye opener' for us many who are unaware about the intricacies of the issue for so many yrs that YOU have been fighting for it.
Thank YOU, Sir. This paper has 'armed & fortified' me much better for the NDTV Show on 'OROP' tomorrow.
Though long (necessarily, I guess), it is very comprehensive & a treatise in itself. It is like the 'Bible of OROP'. CONGRATS 2 U, Sir.
With Best Wishes & Fondest Regards
