BJP accuses govt of witholding pensions

Leader of Opposition in Delhi assembly Vijay Kumar Malhotra on Thursday lashed out at the city government for not releasing money to be distributed as pension for senior citizens. The BJP leader alleged that no money has been released since August.

Malhotra said since the last one year over 50,000 senior citizens have applied for old age pension.

‘They have duly completed the procedures and have got their forms attested by MLAs. Even the social welfare department of the Delhi government had sanctioned pension for around 8,000 people, however, the Chief Minister has not only withheld the money, but also ordered action against officer who grant pension with persmission,’ he alleged.
