Former FM Arun Jaitley’s pension to be used for the financial benefit of Rajya Sabha employees

The Rajya Sabha secretariat has launched an Employees’ Welfare Scheme in the name of former Finance Minister Arun Jaitley, who passed away last year. The welfare scheme is supposed to give financial assistance to Group – C employees, i.e. bottom level workers of the parliament.

The welfare scheme has come into implementation by the approval and wish of Sangeeta Jaitley, wife of the senior leader, who was also the Leader of the House in the Rajya Sabha.
Arun Jaitley, BJP’s senior leader passed away in August last year.

After his demise, Sangeeta Jaitley wrote a letter to the Rajya Sabha chairman M Venkaiah Naidu last year and urged him to utilize the family pension entitled to her for the benefit of the workers of the secretariat.
