Amritsar, November 20

The Punjab Pensioners’ Front held a meeting at the judicial complex here and decided to launch an agitation on Friday at the DC office on December 18 in support of their demands.

Convened by Baldev Singh Haer, the pensioners demanded that the pay commission report be implemented at the earliest, DA instalments be released, cashless medical treatment be raised up to Rs5 lakh, PSPCL retired employees should get 200 units free and pending LTC be released.

“Due to the apathy of the authorities, the pensioners are facing difficulties in getting their work done at the treasury and other administrative offices. We demand that pensioners be given a priority in dealing with cases. A lot of pension and revised pension related cases have been gathering dust in offices,” said Baldev Singh.

Others present included Inder Singh Mann, Amarjit Singh Sarkaria, Darshan Singh Gill, Amarjit Singh Bhola, Lakhwinder Singh Gill, Principal Sarbjot Singh Gill and Kulwant Singh Randhawa.
