Stop lifetime pension to politicians in India

LIFE TIME PENSION GIVEN TO POLITICIANS IN INDIA WHO HAVE SERVED EVEN A SINGLE TENURE, IS GROSSLY UNJUSTIFIED AND IS A DRAIN ON THE PUBLIC EXCHEQUER.

A GOVT SERVANT HAS TO PUT IN A MINIMUM PERIOD OF 20 YEARS SERVICE TO BE ELIGIBLE FOR PENSION; IN ARMED FORCES, ONE HAS TO RISK HIS / HER LIFE TO PROTECT THE NATION AND PUT IN MINIMUM 20 YEARS SERVICE TO BE ELIGIBLE FOR PENSION WHICH IS 50% OF THEIR PAY ON RETIREMENT. BUT POLITICIANS WHO HOLD THEIR POLITICAL POSITIONS IN AC OFFICES / LEGISLATIVE ASSEMBLIES / PARLIAMENT AND ARE PROTECTED BY THE ARMED SECURITY PROVIDED ROUND THE CLOCK AT THE COST OF PUBLIC FUNDS, RECEIVE FULL PAY ON RETIREMENT TILL DEATH, AFTER SERVING JUST ONE TERM OF 5 YEARS. AND WHAT SERVICE THEY IMPART IS WELL KNOWN TO EVERYONE - RESORT TO ABUSIVE LANGUAGE / MANHANDLING / DHARNAS IN PARLIAMENT / LEGISLATIVE ASSEMBLIES; SOMETIMES THE ENTIRE SESSION COMES TO AN END WITHOUT DOING ANY WORK.

IS PAYING LIFETIME PENSION TO POLITICIANS WHO HAVE SERVED JUST ONE TERM OF 5 YEARS JUSTIFIED? IS IT NOT DISCRIMINATORY WITH THE PENSION RULES APPLICABLE TO GOVT SERVICE / DEFENSE FORCES? IS IT NOT A DRAIN ON THE PUBLIC EXCHEQUER? 

IF IT IS, THEN THE GOVT MUST BE COMPELLED TO SCRAP THE LIFETIME PENSION TO POLITICIANS IN THE INTEREST OF THE NATION. PUBLIC ELECTS THEIR REPRESENTATIVES SO THAT THEY MAY MAKE RULES & LAWS IN THE PUBLIC INTEREST BUT IN OUR COUNTRY, OUR REPRESENTATIVES MAKE RULES & LAWS FOR THEIR OWN BENEFIT. ALL THESE RULES / LAWS SHOULD BE DECLARED NULL & VOID. IT IS ONLY THE H,BLE SUPREME COURT OF INDIA WHO CAN TAKE THE INITIATIVE TO CURB THIS MALPRACTICE WHICH IS A LOOT WITH THE NATION.
