Yesterday, I happened to read a report from AIRIEF Legal Matters Spokesperson Sh. M.P. Agnihotri regarding LIC Pensioners case at Delhi High Court. This report covers A to Z of entire issue. It is my view that AIRIEF top leadership believes in concealing more and sharing less with its cadres.
For example, it was decided in June,2015 AIRIEF Legal Committee Meeting held at Bhopal that AIRIEF will also implead itself in Pending Supreme Court Case but AIRIEF could not implement its decision and nothing was conveyed to its cadres.
Next, AIRIEF again decided in its OBs and Legal Committee Meeting held at New Delhi on 02.05.2016 that AIRIEF will implead itself at Delhi High Court. However, yesterday's report and earlier Circular No 11 issued by AIRIEF GS is again silent on this issue. All concerned wish to know whether AIRIEF has filed its fresh Writ at Delhi High Court or not and what is its writ no and what is current status of its further listing before Designated Bench at Delhi High Court.
The report posted in AIRIEF Blog says that Sh S.N. Chhabra is not interested in filing amended petition on behalf of Chandigarh High Court Petitioners at Delhi High Court. This is not true. The fact is that he has already signed an affidavit prepared by Advocate representing Chandigarh Petitioners at Delhi High Court and hence amended writ on behalf of Chandigarh Petitioners is likely to be filed at Delhi High Court at the earliest. Rest assured it will be communicated with all concerned through LICPC. We believe not in concealing any thing or wrong reporting.
As per decision of AIRIEF Meeting held on 02.05.2016, Sh S.N. Chhabra was advised to hand over papers related to Chandigarh Petitioners to advocate engaged for Jaipur Petitioners but all 23 surviving out of 31 petitioners at Chandigarh High Court did not agree for the same and have engaged their own independent advocate for Delhi High Court matter since their trust level in AIRIEF Jaipur Case Manager is almost Zero. Expenses for engaging our independent advocate for Delhi High Court will be borne by Panchkula AIRIEF Unit only.
