New Delhi, Sep 6: Agitating servicemen on Sunday said they will continue their protest over the One Rank One Pension (OROP) scheme as the government did not accept all their demands.

Maj. Gen. Satbir Singh (retd.), who has been heading the veterans' campaign, said even though the government accepted the implementation of OROP on Saturday, they will continue their agitation as the government had to do more in this regard.
