Octogenarian leader AGP passes away!

Legendary leader AGP Red Salutes!

Comrade AGP breathed his last! Red Salutes Red Salutes!!

It is the saddest news to our ears. The veteran octogenarian leader of CG movement and Patron of AIPRPA Tamilnadu State comrade A.G.Pasupathy has passed away yesterday night at 10.00 P.M. He had reportedly experienced some breathing problem and stopped breathing. A great leader with unparalleled qualities of bravery and struggles is no more. Despite his age of 85 and physical illnesses, his indomitable spirit in attending all our meetings and struggles up to our Vijayawada AIC was stupendous! There is no proper words to express our deep sorrow and the loss is quite irreparable to our entire movement. The funeral is at 4.00 P.M today evening from his residence at Guduvancheri. AIPRPA dips its banner and lower its flag to honour the departed leader comrade AGP!

Happy New Year 2018

CHQ wishes a happy and prosperous 2018 to all!
Comrades and Friends!
2017 is completed. 2018 New Year has just begun! Many developments marked 2017. Stupendous unity of Working Class exhibited in this year against nefarious neo liberal policies of Central Government. 7th CPC report implemented with its negative recommendations unchanged and positive recommendations unaccepted like Option 1 for Pensioners. However Option 3 was offered and implemented for CG Pensioners that brought some relief to us during 2017. Postal pensioners won the right to join CGHS irrespective of the area of their retirement during 2017. AIPRPA held its 2nd AIC in 2017. AIPRPA conducted its national independent programmes for speedy implementation of refixation of pension orders. NCCPA conducted its all India centralized Dharna in the capital. All is said and done, the need of the hour is to unify all organizations of pensioners in a single platform and to unite with the unified platform of Indian working class in 2018 at least! That shall be the beginning of a meaningful new year! AIPRPA CHQ pleadges its work direction in this path and greets all a happy and prosperous New Year 2018! - KR GS AIPRPA
