Members of the Vikalangula Hakula Porata Samiti laid a siege to the Prakasam Bhavan right here on Monday demanding distribution of social safety pension to all eligible individuals with out imposing any circumstances.
Main the protest, the samiti State president A. Suresh stated they had been shocked when the officers served notices to over six lakh pensioners on the New 12 months Day asking why pension shouldn’t be stopped from February.
Electrical energy consumption over and above the restrict mounted by the federal government, proudly owning of four-wheelers by members of the family of the differently-abled pensioners and contract employment for any member of the family of the beneficiaries had been proven as causes within the notices, he lamented.
Joined by activists of Madiga Reservation Porata Samiti(MRPS), based by Manda Krishna Madiga, they raised slogans demanding that the pension for differently-abled individuals be hiked to ₹6,000 per 30 days making an allowance for the rise in price of dwelling. They threatened to take their agitation to Amaravati if pension was stopped to any of the VHPS members.
