Vikas Nagar. Talking to reporters, Jan Sangharsh Morcha president and former vice-president of GMVN, Raghunath Singh Negi said that recently the district administration has ordered to take only one pension from the state agitators who are getting double pension (agitation pension and pension from other sources). Has been issued, under which notices have been issued to select only one pension as an option out of pension or agitating pension received from other sources and action has been mentioned in case of otherwise, in which mandate no. 1177 dated 23/8/12 has been referred to.
It is worth noting that most of the agitators to whom notices have been issued are family (dependent) pensioners. It is a different matter that there is a provision in the mandate for taking only one pension. Negi said that it is surprising that MLAs and MPs are taking many pensions, but no rule applies to them, on the other hand, the agitators who united day and night for the formation of the state, were deprived of their rights. Very sad to have. The agitators are deeply disappointed by this double standard. Negi said that the pension given to the agitators is not a financial aid, but it is a respectable amount. The Morcha will soon place the pension case of the agitators before the government. Morcha general secretary and state agitators Akash Panwar and Vijay Ram Sharma were present in the press conference.
