Mai-Paa government ?

Amitabh bachchan's new movie "Paa" , based on a child with a rare disease , progeria, premature aging, opened with great fanfare. The actors were paid in several crores.

Meanwhile, 3 siblings (10,15 and 16 years) in village Mokhampur in Haridwar district in Uttarakhand, suffer from the same disease, and do not have much time to live. Just 3-4 years. Their father, Wahid, has been running pillar to posts to get disability pension so that he could meet expenses but in vain. The Government gives pensions to the disabled only between 18 and 60 years of age. Currently no provisions exist for these children.

In the meanwhile, MP's with proven criminal backgrounds get a life pension, for "attending" a single 5 year "life" of Parliament. No questions asked.

Is the Ministry of Child Welfare deaf ? Or plain dumb?

Dumb, deaf and indifferent too.

Yes, because laws are made by them for themselves.
Who cares about the under privileged.
