This (25 May 15) morning, Wg Cdr Birdi, the Air Force/MoD's PRO called me up to tell me that the Honourable Prime Minister is likely to announce OROP and would I take a call for an interview from NDTV.
Wg Cdr Birdi gave me the name of NDTV's reporter and followed it up with a sms to the reporter conveying my mobile numbers.
But strikingly and sadly, really sadly, the Jawan was left out. Then the PM departed for New Delhi by helicopter.
And there was no mention of OROP though NDTV still (at 6.26 pm when I last watched the channel) still had the thing scrolling!
P.S: So Honourable Finance Minister was correct! Some more time!!
Maybe till 7th CPC announces its recommendations? By which time the Govt would have the funds?? Or get its calculations done? Or....
