THIRUVANANTHAPURAM: Opposition leader Ramesh Chennithala has said that the incident of a poor housewife committing suicide because she didn’t receive the KSRTC pension must become an eye-opener for the government.

“Even if the government has no money to provide pension for these poor people, they have enough to splurge on helicopter rides to party meetings. At least after this incident the government must consider this as a humanitarian problem and take steps to provide the stalled pensions for these poor KSRTC former employees,” he said.

He added: “The housewife committed suicide due to debts because she hasn’t received her due pensions for the past five months. The situation of most of the KSRTC pensioners is the same.’

Chennithala also pointed out that many of these old and helpless pensioners don’t even have enough money to buy medicines.
