BJP lost in Himachal, K’taka as it didn’t adopt OPS: CM

Jaipur: CM Ashok Gehlot on Monday claimed that BJP and PM Narendra Modi’s “stubbornness” in not adopting Old Pension Scheme (OPS) led to the BJP’s defeat in the Himachal Pradesh and Karnataka polls and the BJP was set to lose in more states.

Addressing the ‘Labharthi Utsav’ programme, he claimed that said Modi was advised by then CM of Himachal Pradesh to adopt the Old Pension System for government employees, but he “remained adamant”.

Restoration of the OPS was one of the main promises made by the Congress in the 2022 Himachal Pradesh Assembly polls.

“There is no place for stubbornness in a democracy. In democracy, one has to bow before the voters,” Gehlot said.
He also urged the prime minister to examine the Right to Health Bill, 2022, passed by the Congress government in Rajasthan.

During the ‘Labharthi Utsav’, benefits under the ‘Indira Gandhi Gas Cylinder Subsidy’ scheme were transferred to the bank accounts of 14 lakh registered beneficiary families. Under this scheme, launched on April 1, as many as 76 lakh families will be provided gas cylinders for Rs 500.
