Gandhi drove to Jantar Mantar where the Delhi Police tried to evict the ex-servicemen, holding protest for two months pressing for OROP, and disapproved of the police action, saying those who had protected the country must be respected.

"The reality is that our Prime Minister makes promises very easily but he fails to fulfill them. He had promised jobs to youths but 'Make in India' did not succeed. He had promised to clean  India. But Swatch Bharat did not yield results. He had promised his corporate friends that he will get them the Land Bill approved. But it did not happen. Similarly, he had also promised to implement OROP but it has not materialised," Rahul Gandhi told reporters after meeting the agitating former servicemen.

The Congress-vice president insisted that the Prime Minister should have thought of technicalities in implementing the OROP before making the promise. "The Prime Minister had promised that he will implement the OROP. It is a very simple matter, the Prime Minister must give a date now, if he says that on this date the work will be done, then this entire agitation will be over. "The Prime Minister made a promise over OROP and now he just has to say one line, that I will get this work done by this date," said Gandhi.
