Mysoora Redddy has said “our Party was explicit in seeking justice to all

‘At the
All Party Meeting held at Delhi on December 28, 2012, we have given a letter to

here on Wednesday.

Singh now telling that YSR Congress has given its nod to the division of the

a father and find a solution that would be acceptable to all.

pensions from Rs 75 to Rs 200 and ensured that the amount is reached at the
doorstep on first of every month, the present government has diluted the scheme
and disbursement has been erratic.

government contends that pensions would be distributed only during Rachabanda
programme. The last such programme was held in December 2011 and applications
of 7 lakh eligible persons were not cleared as the shuttle services between
Delhi and the city got busy with ministers and Chief Ministers running up and

the pensions disbursed has increased from  16 lakh to  71 lakh in
2008 in YSR term, during the present government the pensions have come down by
4 lakh while budget has increased from Rs 1, 03,000 crores to Rs 1, 60,000
