'2 years of job and life-long pension..,' SC slams Kerala's communist govt

New Delhi: The Supreme Court on Monday (March 14, 2022) enraged heavily at the Pinarayi Vijayan government in Kerala. A bench of Justices S Abdul Nazeer and Krishna Murari said that as such, the state government is paying lifelong pensions for private employees appointed by ministers with two years of service.

The observations were made by the Supreme Court, Kerala State Road Transport Corporation (KSRCTC) while refusing to entertain a petition from bulk buyers challenging the price levied for diesel by state-owned oil marketing companies, according to a media report. Senior advocate V Giri, appearing for Kerala, was told by the court, "Today we have read in the Indian Express. You are the only state where people are hired for 2 years and given a lifelong pension. The state has a lot of money, tell the authorities this.''

According to media reports, senior advocate V Giri, appearing for the KSRCTC, replied that he would convey the concerns of the Supreme Court to the government. A two-judge bench, including Justice Nazeer and Justice Krishna Murari, asked the petitioner to approach the Kerala High Court on the issue of fuel pricing.
