THIRUVANANTHAPURAM: The Kerala State Pensioners’ Sangh has reminded the government that it is a disgrace forcing the pensioners to take to the streets for launching an agitation for claiming their pension and other statutory benefits. Inaugurating a dharna organised by the Sangh in front of the Secretariat, BJP south zone general secretary M S Syamkumar said that the Chief Minister was unable to take decisions as the various forces in the party and government were engaged in factional feuds bringing the government machinery to a grinding halt.

 The Sangh is raising demands like pension revision, 20 per cent interim relief, granting of festival allowance worth Rs 3,000 and health insurance. Sangh district president T Padmanabhan Nair, state vice-president P Prabhakaran Nair, treasurer K Sudhakaran Nair, Amaravila Thankayyan, Sreekumaran Thampi and Vellanad Radhakrishnan also spoke.

District secretary K P Ramachandran Nair welcomed the gathering.
