Demanding suitable enactments to protect the parents from the harassing children, MLC Sudhakar Babu launched a 24-hour hunger strike at Raj Vihar Centre here on Tuesday.
Addressing newsmen, Sudhakar Babu said that the Government should sanction Rs. 1,000 for the parents who attained the age of 60.
Expressing concern over the plight of the neglected parents by their children, the MLC said that the children should be indebted to their parents for giving them birth. “The children should serve their parents in their old age but should not leave them in lurch,” he added.
The government should enact a law that would direct the government employees to pay 25 per cent of their salary to the aged parents if they leave their parents after marriage, he added.
He said that the government should take oath from the government employees that they would take care of their parents and if they did not they should be removed from service. The state government which had been introducing various welfare schemes, should take care of the aged parents by sanctioning a pension of Rs. 1, 000 per month by forming a special fund for this purpose, the MLC said.
He hoped that the people would change their attitudes towards their parents after learning about his hunger strike.
