Open letter to Indian PM on pension for a lifetime after one term in Parliament

Open letter to Indian PM on pension for a lifetime after one term in Parliament

Geeta Nargundkar

*Dear P.M.*
*Shri Narendra Modi ji,*
*Namaskar !*
*Make this change and the country will recognize your leadership...*
*Lifetime pension accorded for one tenure of politicians - is gross injustice compared to the rest of the government servants who have to put in a minimum of 20 years of service. This is a drain on the public exchequer.*
*No one has been able to explain why young men & women who serve in the Military for 20 years or more, risking their lives protecting our freedom get only 50% of their pay on retirement & Short Service Commissioned Officers who also risk their life for a term varying from 5-14 yrs - get ZERO retirement benefits after their assignment.*
*But Politicians who hold their political positions in the safe confines of the capital, protected by these very same men & women, receive Full-Pay on retirement after serving just one term of 5 yrs. Does it make any sense ???*
*PM SIR, CHANGE THIS RULE AND THE NATION SHALL BE GRATEFUL TO YOU FOREVER...*
*Abolish, politicians' pension for life.*
*Just like you motivated common people to give up subsidy, motivate MPs to give up numerous undeserving exorbitant perks and subsidies granted unanimously by themselves, including pension.*
*And we hope it starts with yourself... You are a great motivator...*
*Thanking you in anticipation of a favourable response,*
Yours sincerely.
