Congress got a big issue for MP elections, will the Finance Minister’s answer become a weapon in the assembly?

Bhopal: The controversy over the old pension in Madhya Pradesh has now reached the Vidhan Sabha. Where the opposition party Congress has made it an election issue. At the same time, the government is not looking in favor of pension. On Wednesday, on the eighth day of the budget session of the Vidhan Sabha, there was a lot of uproar in the House on old pension. During the question hour, on the question of former minister Sajjan Verma, Finance Minister Jagdish Deora said that no proposal for old pension is under consideration of the government. Angered by this, Congress MLAs walked out of the house. Congress President and former Chief Minister Kamal Nath also spoke on old pension. He said that the government runs with the help of the employees. If there is injustice with the employees, how will the government run?

Talking to the media, Kamal Nath said that our colleague Sajjan Verma asked a simple question whether the government will implement the old pension? In response to this question, Finance Minister Jagdish Deora shrugged it off by saying ‘there is no proposal’.

Congress wants to make pension an issue
Let us tell you that Congress-ruled Rajasthan, Chhattisgarh and many other states have implemented the old pension. After this, the Congress is also claiming in Madhya Pradesh that if the Congress government is formed in the 2023 assembly elections, the old pension will be implemented in the state as well. By raising questions in the Vidhansabha, the opposition is planning to bring it to the public in the form of a record. In such a situation, he will be able to say his words in a concrete way.
