[Days elapsed:  7]

      Question again proposed: That this House;

 

 COGNISANT that Section 73 of the Constitution obligates the State to protect the environment for the benefit of present and future generations through reasonable legislative and other measures that prevent pollution and ecological degradation, promote conservation and secure ecologically sustainable development and use of natural resources;

            

ALSO COGNISANT that wild animals depend on the environment as a habitat and source of food;

 

 CONCERNED that human beings are endangering the survival of wild animals through the unsustainable harvesting of wild fruits which results in human and  wildlife conflict;

 CONCERNED with the glaring gap in the regulatory framework on matters to deal with administration and compensation of policy holders and pensioners whenever a plethora of irregularities arise, a situation that has resulted in pensioners and policy  holders, being prejudiced of their benefits;

DISTURBED by the complete disregard of the welfare of pensioners by the concerned authorities;
