Chandigarh - SCNSD - Ask for welfare funds
Senior citizens seek implementation of welfare funds
The Chandigarh Senior Citizens' Association celebrated Raksha Bandhan, senior citizens' National Solidarity day and Independence day at Govt Museum and Art Gallery in sector 10. The members adopted two resolutions seeking implementation of existing instructions on welfare of the old and allocation of funds under Corporate Social Responsibility towards projects concerning aging issues and care for the old. The resolutions will be included in a memorandum, the copies of which will be sent to the Prime Minister, Administrator and the local MP.
President of the Association Retd Brig. Keshav Chandra said such events not only help to voice their concerns to the top authorities but also instill a sense of belonging among its members. He said the bond will be further strengthened during the month long activities in September leading up to the Senior Citizens' Day on 1st October.
