The party said that the Narendra Modi government had honoured the soldiers of the country. "We welcome the decision. It is a historic decision," BJP general secretary Anil Jain stated here.

“The Congress had deceived the ex-servicemen on OROP for decades. It was Modi government which honoured them by implementing the scheme," he said, adding, "Earlier governments had made the OROP scheme complicated." Meanwhile, BJP workers have decided to march towards India Gate here to celebrate the decision.
