In our country where crores of people do not get full meals for two times a day, our MPs and MLAs continue to get tax free income on their pay and allowances.  Not only that they get life time pension for serving even a single term in any house. While others who toil hard for 30 to 40 years keep on paying Income Tax during their service.  But when they retire, they get a meagre pension for their sustenance n medical needs which gets taxed. This a discriminatory policy.

If people's representatives, who spend crores to fund their election campaign, can get a Tax free pension just for a single tenure of representing those people who vote them and send to the house of commons, why this discrimination with those who toil hard to earn pension having spent the prime period of their first 60 years in the service of the Nation. 

I request Hon'ble Prime Minister and Hon'ble Finance Minister to bring at par the rules governing pensioners, be they a commoner or people's representatives. 

Modiji has made numerous positive policy changes for the welfare of the country, since he came to power with a thumping National Victory. Now is the time to adopt a policy on these lines to remove such basic discrimination. 

Just removing red n blue lights from VIP cars is not enough, such economic measures need be taken by GOI to bring transparency in public administration. This is also necessary to curb exorbitant election expenditure in the hope of getting life time pension, if getting elected.


Warm personal regards.
