89-YO Freedom Fighter Gets Pension After Running From Pillar To Post For 40 Years In Chennai
We had a Gandhi who immortalised our freedom struggle with his ways of truth and non-violence. He lost his life trying to bring this country together, and today cannot see the unfortunate circumstances that his fellow freedom fighters are surviving in. One such freedom fighter from Chennai struggled not only for the independence of the country but also to get his pension for four decades.
The Madras High Court has expressed regret that an 89-year-old Indian National Army member had to struggle for four decades to get freedom fighter pension due to “bureaucratic dogmatism”, and ordered the Tamil Nadu government to grant it in two weeks.
