Chamba, May 9
The Chamba Jan Hit Sangathan has urged the government to make a provision for social security pension to all small traders in the state who have attained the age of 60 years so that they could live a stress-free life.
In a statement issued here today, sangathan convener Shadi Lal Sharma and president Kishore Baroo said a large segment of small traders were poor and remain haunted by the apprehension of downturn in the market. Therefore, pension was imperative, enabling them to meet the expenses of their livelihood in the old age, they added. — OC
