Our attention has been drawn to a statement circulated in a meeting of retired employees at Hyderabad by Shri GN Sridharan. It is unfortunate that mention about Pensioners Chronicle has been made to show the blog as a handy platform for a faction of retired LIC officers at Hyderabad. It may be clarified that Pensioners Chronicle has a very independent policy with regard to the various pensioners associations and the problems of pensioners in general. All pensioner associations have freely made use of Chronicle as a vehicle for communicating news and views. Shri GN Sridharan is no exception.
Shri Sreenivasa Murty
has been frequently
writing details of his
views and various
approaches in the
Supreme Court and we
do publish the same. Our policy is to publish the materials we receive
- But what is more important and dear to the Editor is to get opposite views for publishing the same prominently. Certain positive developments are covered with utmost care and with all importance. This is why we prominently covered the Chandigarh reception given to Shri Asthana. Shri Hegde from Udupi used to write very clear and candid arguments opposing those advanced by Shri Murty. Every time Shri Hegde wrote, we happily allowed him very prominent coverage. And we wish others too had come forward to express their views. Such exchange of views is our ardent desire.
