Demographical aging has hit the Indian shares as well. People are living longer & life expectancy is steadily rising, already elderly have 13% share in Indian Electoral. Average voting percentage in Indian elections is 55.5%, but voting percentage of 60+ persons in every election is staggering 90%. Thus actual vote share of Sr citizens is 20%. Still they are a neglected lot!
every election is staggering 90%. Thus actual vote share of Sr citizens is 20%. Still they are a neglected lot! Pensioners are a major chunk of Indian intelligent voter who are armed, with vast knowledge & experience. They can not be a helpless lot. They are still capable of turning the tides.
Why not then Pensioners take a lead in uniting Sr citizens?
So, Come on, let us commit ourselves to this mission.
How do we propose to implement our vision
1. Start communicating with each other Communication is the basic step for forging unity, understanding each other & for solving problems, so start communicating with each other.
(I) At local level:-
(a) Communicate with your own members
(b) With Pensioners Associations of other departments, with Sr.Citizen Forums, With NGOs/social organizations, with Associations/trade unions of working employees, with VIPS and the Media.
(II) At National level:- Communicate regularly with inter department Pensioners Associations, with pensioners’ confederations / Samaj & With Sr Citizens Associations /confederations /Federations.
2. Start helping each other at local as well as at National level If one Association is facing some problem let us show solidarity by extending our support to it in what ever way possible. At least write a few lines to the concerned authorities supporting the affected Association.
3. In case of a National emergency or a natural calamity stand shoulder to shoulder with the Administration & the fellow citizen."
