AIRIEF FUND COLLECTION DRIVE IN HYDERABAD


I reproduce hereunder a message by email received from Mr M Sreenivasa
Murty who is presently in Delhi on Hyderabad Association's work in
connection with the Writ Petition filed in Delhi HC:


CH MAHADEVAN

"SUB: OUR PENSION CASES - FUND COLLECTION DRIVE IN HYDERABAD

I am baffled to learn that teams of local leaders of the AIRIEF are on
a 'house to house' visit to Pensioners and have stepped up their
campaign like never before. I said I am baffled because I receive
calls and queries from some of our members who are almost pressurized
by the visiting leaders by their 'more loyal than the King' approach
in the race to collect as much as possible from as many people as
possible.

I can't question the democratic right of anybody for fund raising from
anybody, in any manner for any cause. It all depends on the skill of
the 'taker' and the willingness of the 'giver'.

But I have been trying to put things in perspective to who ever I come
in contact with. There has been a tremendous amount of misinformation
being spread and avoiding questions on facts.

I have a serious suggestion to ALL PENSIONERS who are approached by
anybody for fund collection in the name of fighting our pension cases
in Delhi:

PLEASE ASK QUESTIONS AND SATISFY YOURSELF ON THE FOLLOWING:

1. What is the exact status of our Cases in Courts, as on today?
2. Who are all the Organizations that pursued the cases in Supreme
Court till its Judgement was delivered on 31 March 2016?
3. Where do we stand today and who have done what, till now AFTER 31st
March 2016?
4. What are the plans of each Organization and what are their goals?
5. How was the money spent earlier and why do they need more?
6. Is fund raising a need-based campaign or a competition among
different centers?
7. As all our cases are referred to the Delhi High Court, to be
decided in a time bound schedule, who is doing what, now?
8. Are the local leaders able to answer any of the above questions
truthfully and confidently or have they simply reduced themselves to
the position of COLLECTION AGENTS for their all India leadership?

As the local Leaders are exhibiting blind loyalty and are in darkness
themselves, let Pensioners be sure of why they are paying what they
are paying.

AFTER ALL, AT THE END OF THE DAY IT IS YOUR MONEY AND 

YOUR CHOICE. IF YOU ARE GULLIBLE AND WILLING TO WASTE 
IT, THERE ARE ALWAYS LEADERS WHO ARE READY TO 
PRESSURIZE  YOU TO PAY WITHOUT ANSWERING ANY 
QUESTIONS. AS THEY THEMSELVES DON'T HAVE THE ANSWERS.

AS ONE IN THE THICK OF THE BATTLE FIGHTING FOR ALL LIC 
PENSIONERS, I FEEL IT IS MY MORAL RIGHT & RESPONSIBILITY 
TO ALERT ALL.

IF YOU HAVE ANY QUESTIONS, PLEASE CALL ME ON 9177737356 
ANYTIME.
