Report received from Shri Manjit Singh Patel, President, All India New Pension Scheme (NPS) Employees Federation
Demanding restoration of old pension, this is the scene of Himachal Pradesh, where lakhs of employees took to the streets of Shimla today. It is possible that if the central government does not wake up still, then the day is not far when the employees will start considering changing the governments. The Establishment has to understand that 76 lakh employee families mean around 4 crore votes. And, this vote affects even more votes. It is clear that thousands of NPS employee families are present in every Lok Sabha seat, who have shown the trailer of anti-government stand in Uttar Pradesh assembly elections, the result of which will be clearly visible from the ballot papers on March 10.
The non-BJP states have understood the gravity of the issue and have started cornering the central government, an example of which can be seen in the old pension restoration announcements of the Rajasthan, Maharashtra and Jharkhand governments. It is so clear that if the central government continues to sleep or ignore it, then in 2024 the BJP will also be ignored.
