In Kerala, the Supreme Court has raised the question of giving pension to those who have worked for only 2 years as the staff of ministers. The court, while dismissing the petition of the Kerala Transport Authority against the high price of petroleum products, said – your state has a lot of money. After working there for 2 years, the government gives pension for life.
The policy of giving pension to the personal staff of ministers in Kerala is in controversy these days. The Kerala High Court is also hearing this. In the petition filed in the High Court, it has been told that the Left Front government led by CPM has made a policy of giving money to its party workers from the exchequer. For this, a worker is appointed as an employee of the minister. Under the government policy, he becomes an officer of pension in 2 years. Therefore, after 2 years that worker is removed and another one is appointed. In this way, there are a large number of CPM workers, who are working for the party by taking government pension.
What is the need for such a petition?
The Kerala State Transport Authority had filed a petition saying that the state-owned petroleum companies have changed the price charged from those who buy petroleum products in large quantities. Due to this he has to spend more. A bench of Justices S Abdul Nazeer and Krishna Murari declined to hear the matter. The judges said that when the state has so much money, then what is the need of such a petition? Tell your superiors that in Kerala, pension is available for life for 2 years of service. However, at the end of the hearing, on the request of the senior counsel appearing for the Kerala Transport Corporation, the court allowed him to place the case of high petroleum price in the High Court.
