Protest Against State Govt,

Employees from several government agencies staged a protest at ITI Chowk today, demanding improvements to the old pension programme under the banner of old pensions and the Bahali Sangharsh Committee.

Hundreds of supporters gathered in the area, blocking the highway and shouting anti-state government slogans. Representatives from the committee (Board) said that if the Congress government fails to revive the scheme, it will cost the party dearly in the Next Assembly elections.

Jasvir Singh, state convener said that “Finance Minister Manpreet Badal had promised that the old pension scheme would be revived once the Congress formed the government. Even after four-and-a-half years in power, the party had not fulfilled the promise. If government dilly-dally continues, it will become difficult for its legislators and ministers to seek votes ahead of the elections.”

Jarnail Singh, general secretary, said: - “The condition of the elderly, who retired under the NPS scheme is pitiable. It has become difficult for them to bear the cost of medicines with their limited pension. They have given precious years of their life to the service of different government departments, and are now left to fend for themselves. There was no mention of the old pension scheme in the 6th Pay Commission report implemented by the government recently. If the scheme was not resuscitated soon, they would be left with no other option but to intensify their struggle.”
