Wheels for ex-PMs

Nishant Singh, Lautoka
Friday, February 23, 2018

I believe former PM and Labour leader Mahendra Chaudhry duly deserves an official government vehicle as well, FT 22/02.

I believe though the Prime Minister's Pension Act 1994 stipulates that they have to serve a minimum term of five years to qualify for this benefit, let us not forget that Mr Chaudhry was ousted from power through a coup de'tat in 2000, less than a year after taking up office.

I believe denying Mr Chaudhry "wheels" is downright discriminatory, biased and irrational.

I believe it would be fair if the powers that be immediately reviewed and re-inked the PM's Pension Act.
