Meet to focus on welfare of senior citizens

To focus on physical and financial support for the eight crore senior citizens in the country, the Senior Citizens' Federation of India will organise a conclave on the eve of Independence Day at Talkatora Stadium here. It will be attended by BJP president Nitin Gadkari, Leader of Opposition in Lok Sabha Sushma Swaraj and senior party leader Ananth Kumar.

According to Federation president and BJP general secretary Vijay Goel, the meeting will focus on the pressing issues faced by senior citizens.

“Be it the almost non-existent government facilities for them or their being ignored and abandoned by their children, or being embroiled in properly disputes or their safety, all the issues concerning senior citizens would be deliberated upon,” he said.
