Raising slogans like 'One Rank, One Pension', 'No delay no dilution' and 'Sainik ekta zindabad', an indefinite relay hunger strike was launched at Jantar Mantar.

Different batches of 50-55 ex-servicemen will sit on a 24-hour hunger strike everyday till a specific date for implementing the OROP scheme is not announced.

"We won't budge until the government gives us a date for implementing 'One Rank, One Pension'," Major General Satbir Singh (retd), president of the Indian Ex-Servicemen Movement which is spearheading the protests, told reporters.
