With due respect it is submitted that the Nationwide Fasting Program was successfully organized on 01 June 2021 on the call of Commander Ashok Raut, the National President, National Agitation Committee by 67 lakhs EPS95 pensioners.

The EPS 95 pensioners who have smart phones also tried to send the photos of their fasting along with their feelings to your good office.

In the last 5 years, after conducting various types of agitations across the country from Tehsil level to National level, all the agitations were withdrawn after repeated assurances by the Labor Minister except the Chain hunger strike infront of the Collector office,Buldhana, being the HQ of NAC.
