PRIME MINISTER SIR, CHANGE THIS AND THE NATION SHALL BE GRATEFUL TO YOU FOR WHAT YOU DID.
Dear PM Shri Narendra Modi ji,
Make this change and we will recognize your leadership
Lifetime pension accorded for one tenure of politicians - is gross injustice 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 to me why young men and women who serve in the Military for 20 years or more, risking their lives protecting your freedom only get 50% of their pay on retirement and Short Service Commissioned Officers who also risk their life for a term varying from 5-14 yrs - get ZERO retirement benefits after their assignment.
While Politicians 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 ?
(i) Abolish, politician pension for life. As such they are above averagely rich people.
(ii) Just like you motivated common people to give up subsidy, motivate MPs to give up many perks granted unanimously by themselves, but undeservingly exorbitant, including pension.
We hope it starts with yourself.
