National Conference leader Omar Abdullah targeted BJP president Amit Shah for his OROP jibe and said the country was suffering from too much "ODOMOS- overdose of only Modi only Shah"

Omar Abdullah’s response came as a reply to BJP Amit Shah’s Dig against Congress. Omar took to his Twitter account and shared his thoughts

During a rally in Himachal Pradesh's Una, Amit Shah reportedly while targeting Congress said that the BJP government within a year delivered on its promise of One Rank One Pension (OROP) but the Congress gave 'Only Rahul Only Priyanka'."

Shah also accused Rahul Gandhi of paying lip service to the eradication of poverty in the country. “I want to ask Rahul Gandhi what did the Congress government do for 55 years?” Shah said. “It’s only us who are taking measures for the eradication of poverty.”

He further said that no one cared for soldiers for over 70 years but when the Modi government came to power, it implemented the OROP.

They couldn’t provide even a gas cylinder to each household in the country, he claimed.

The BJP president made the jibe days after induction of Congress President Rahul Gandhi's sister Priyanka Gandhi as the Congress general secretary for the eastern Uttar Pradesh.

OROP was a longstanding demand of the armed forces and veterans who demanded the same pension for the same rank, for the same length of service, irrespective of the date of retirement.
