  8. Can the NUP chairman face the dead man‘s children and tell them the reason why his name was removed from the lists of the pensioners and then go ahead to tell them how pathetic their fathers death was?

    You need to see how these old men will be made to stand for hours unend sometimes before they are paid their pension. That alone is another pathetic experience.
