Expressing the government’s commitment to the welfare of soldiers, Rajnath Singh spoke about the implementation of the One Rank One Pension (OROP) scheme.

Rajnath Singh highlighted the BJP track record of fulfilling promises, citing the construction of the grand Ram temple in Ayodhya after getting a majority in Parliament. He also mentioned the fulfillment of the promise to abolish Article 370 and implement the Citizenship Amendment Act (CAA), clarifying that CAA is a law that grants citizenship rather than taking it away.
