How justifiable is the demand for pension to ex-MPs?

By Our Reporter
At a time when the top politicians have been busy blowing the state coffers under different pretexts, the former members of parliament have demanded pension and other facilities.
Their demand, which was strongly opposed by a negligible number of ex MPs themselves, has raised questions whether the MPs take politics as their profession rather than service to the people.  When many of the earthquake victims have been living in the temporary makeshifts, the ex MPs are not demanding relief for their voters but they are exerting pressure on the government for pension and other facilities as if they were former civil servants.
Indeed, the power-hungry politicians have tarnished the image of a limited number of genuine politicians. When they were sitting MPs many of them worked as brokers of the businessmen rather than serving general public and now they are demanding facilities from the state fund.
The ex-MPs should not have put such unpopular demand when the country is waiting for carrying out reconstruction works.
