Don’t we still see the WRITING ON THE WALL? LIC PENSIONERS – YOU ALL SHOULD UNITE YOUR LEADERS WON’T

What a timing? The 7th Pay Commission Report could not have come out at a better time than now, as far as we in LIC are concerned. 

Is it wrong to expect that on 24 Nov 2015, when the Final Hearing in our matters resumes before Hon’ble Justice Dipak Misra, the mood of everybody supporting our cause for full-fledged pension up-gradation should be upbeat? 

The strength or the weakness in our case remained what it has been, for many years. What has changed for the worse, are only 

1) the level of insensitivity of the Corporation towards its past employees bordering on hatred and 

2) most dogmatic polarization of Pensioners’ representatives, both individual leaders and Organizations, who come in the way of what is legitimately due to the Pensioners. 

Now is the time to seriously review our strategy. We can ill afford to lose the golden opportunity.

I, on behalf of the Hyderabad Association have been making hectic preparations for the last few weeks and focus on what needs to be done in the eleventh hour, not to let the situation slip out of our hands. I am fortunate to receive the unstinting support of Sri C H Mahadevan and all my seniors in the Hyderabad Association.
   
In the meantime, I renew my appeal to all the doubting Thomases, the Prophets of doom, ‘I only act - you all follow me’ clan’s high chiefs, to lie low, if not step aside. 

Please don’t revel any more in your unique status of speaking LIC’s language on Pension, directly or indirectly. 

Your members will also get up-gradation soon, whether you want them to or not, whether you are working for it or not.

Good days are ahead. 
 It’s the writing on the wall!
