THIRUVANANTHAPURAM:  Opposition Leader Ramesh Chennithala has written to the Chief Minister Pinarayi Vijayan demanding the welfare pensions in the state should be paid with arrears before March 25. He pointed out that distribution of welfare pensions has come to a standstill in the state for the last five years. 

“Each beneficiary is eligible to get pensions to the tune of more than `5,000. Lakhs of people who depend on these pensions are in crisis,” Chennithala said. Taking this into consideration, the government should take urgent measures to distribute pensions before March 25, he demanded.
