LIC PENSIONERS, WE ARE IN THE COMPANY OF COMPULSIVE 
LIARS, COLLUDERS AND WRECKERS.
(Part 2)


It has been proved that these leaders and these Federations will not protect our interests. We need to fend for ourselves, look for alternative routes.

I had explained more than once, how LIC had been systematically playing truant with its Pensioners, while the role of the existing players from Delhi and Jaipur (and Bangalore & Bhopal, lately) has become more and more suspect. On top of it, AIRIEF, the ‘non-playing Captain’ till now of the one-man Jaipur Brigade, claims to have made a grand entry in the Supreme Court arena, on 11 Jan 2016 (after dilly-dallying for many months on its own policy-decision) via its belated Implead Application. God knows what is its basis against its own Jaipur Unit matter (CA No 8959-62 of 2013) and what if any, happened to it after it was duly filed. May be it is collecting dust like KML’s own Implead Application that just re-surfaced as claimed to have been filed in March 2014 itself. And also like the host of his other Applications including the two WPs he filed in Rajasthan HC on which he and his blind followers were talking non-stop for a whole year. All those junk petitions would have `made the AIRIEF poorer by a few Lakh Rupees while he or his fulltime Counsel would have made a killing as in the past. I concede it is their ‘business’ to fleece, make money for the Federation and enjoy their ‘All India positions’. But what baffles me is that they let the Jaipur wrecker hold and express an ‘opinion’ and comment on my IAs and my role. And the Mohali Astrologer springs up suddenly every now and then to preach others what they should or should not do. He implores that nobody should do anything which would delay the Final Hearing, while it is always his supremo who is the chief cause for delay in the hearing and is the main impediment for the cases to move on. My research in to the archives is midway – I will come out shortly with the facts on delay in the final hearing apportioned among the different culprits from August 2014 till 21 Jan 2016.  

One has to give First rank to KML under the ‘compulsive liar’ category. Records are replete with dozens of instances when KML indulges in spreading deliberate falsehood. I asked him openly not long ago, to make at least his own fulltime Lawyer endorse a canard that he chose to spread, failing which to take a dip in the holy Narmada to wash his sin. I thought he tried to cleanse instead by remaining silent for some time. But habits die hard. On 2nd Dec when his Sr Counsel caused a big kick for the final hearing by over one and half months, a strange story was woven (Counsel’s father was to undergo surgery, which he never mentioned himself and he was very much seen in the same Court the next day) and circulated in an unnecessarily aggressive style by KML. This, to cover up his earlier tall assertion that the hearing will commence and conclude on 2 Dec, come what may. Also to cover up the real reason for the Counsel not to let the hearing happen on 2nd and 3rd Dec.  Result: 48 days of avoidable delay, which was bad enough for several Pensioners to leave this world.     

KML’s latest misadventure is his reference (from the distant Jaipur) to the hearing of my IA on 29 January when he writes ‘AND MURTY SIR DID NOT SPEAK ANYTHING AND HE DESIRED OUR ADVOCATE SHRI RK SINGH TO SPEAK,’’ 

Pity you; there cannot be anything cheaper than this. Mr KML should choose a river of his choice to dip in, if he wants to get out of the compulsive liar category. 

We have ‘colluders’ for company. The other Federation is ever available to facilitate LIC’s game plan to deny and collude with it, in the colossal mischief being played against the distraught Pensioners. Allowing LIC to rewrite the 7 May Order and not raise even a little finger against it, is a brilliant level of camaraderie. Don’t expect any change, its half-hearted public statements to the contrary, notwithstanding  

Today AIRIEF, (the once bigger of the two Federations) is completely at sea, with no sense of direction for itself.  It can’t bank anymore on the one-time Arjuna (as Lord Krishna himself had conferred a well-deserved new title on the warrior – a WRECKER.

I await the amended version of Kurukshetra, though I never ventured to read the original.                                                                            

I just quote: “KMLA wants to indulge to WRECK THE CASE”. (You  ALL DO NOT KNOW kmla HAS FILED A STAY APPLN AGAINST NOTIFICATION IMPLEMENTTATION. !! Entire EMPLOYEES, UNIONS & ALL OTHERS WILL LAUGH
One may think one is taking DRASTIC STEP, but there is a limit to all such UNWANTED & EXCESSIVE NEGATIVE EXUBERANCE
.

I am afraid,many are asking why NOW DELAYED AIRIEF Impleading Also,KMLA WANTED FROM Sri RKSahni CL 1,3 NOTIFICATION for ARGUMENTS & SUBMISSIONS. We shd not confuse the SC & LIC, UOI will then want time to analyse Implications of 1/8/2012. Even if we win as it EXISTS & SC grants Pension upgradation, later after arrears, we will have to be placed in LATEST wage scales, PROVIDED we SUCCEED. Too many UNCERTAINTIES.
Dear Pensioners, what do you expect from these players? Will they or can they really help our cause? 
May I remind you all, of the concluding lines in Part-1 of my Post (reproduced below):
“Justice Misra made a specific remark intervening in the arguments that ‘as we look at this matter, the issue before us is whether the LIC through its Board can take its own decisions and implement or it needs Government Approval for the same’. I was not surprised but I noticed with concern that the SGI…….jumped to fully endorse the observation of the Bench responding: ‘that is exactly the issue My Lord’. To me it is all OMINOUS’’.

(To be concluded with Part-3 to follow, where I wish to clearly unfold the Hyderabad Plan of action to offer our solution to the daunting problem).
