Jantar Mantar finally cleared of protestors after NGT order

Jantar Mantar finally cleared of protestors after NGT order”

Several ex-servicemen, demanding the implementation of "One Rank, One Pension" or OROP, were forcibly evicted from Jantar Mantar on Monday following a National Green Tribunal (NGT) order banning protests and dharnas around the historic monument.

Following the NGT ban, however, the protest has now been moved to Shaheedi Park near Delhi Gate, where CPI leader Atul Kumar Anjaan said farmers coming in from across the country will now congregate. According to police sources, the protestors had been informed about the NGT order in advance and been asked to either leave the premises or bring a stay order.

Major General (Retd) Satbir Singh said the police and MCD officials came to Jantar Mantar with a JCB machine and demolished their tents and other temporary structures.

"They also took away our equipment and other stuff like beddings at around 8.45 am".

A group of ex-servicemen have kept on their protest at the site since June 15, 2015 for One Rank One Pension (OROP) even after the government implemented the scheme, stating that the one given by Defence Ministry is flawed and not the OROP that was promised.

"Crushing dissent, strangulating voices and silencing democracy has become the chief hallmark of the BJP".

Earlier in the day, police and civic officials demolished tents and makeshift structures set up by ex-servicemen protesting at the Jantar Mantar for the last two years.

He, however, clarified that nobody was hurt.

The Congress on Tuesday termed the police crackdown on retired army personnel demanding OROP at Jantar Mantar as a "surgical strike", and attacking Prime Minister Narendra Modi said that on the one hand he celebrates Diwali with soldiers and then "commits gross injustice" with the very same soldiers by denying them OROP. The green panel had also directed the New Delhi Municipal Council (NDMC) to remove all temporary structures, loudspeakers and public address systems from the stretch of the road.
