|1. That the petitioner owing to his poverty and having been desperate from his|
|poverty, unemployment and houseless ness, was constrained to launch an appeal to|
|Hon’ble Prime Minister of the country to the effect that pecuniary assistance be|
|given to rehabilitate himself regarding his bread, clothing and shelter and had|
|also vividly disclosed thereby that no way cut to arrange bread, clothing, shelter|
|was left with the petitioner. In the event of failure to get the desired things|
|arranged on your good self’s part the petitioner being compelled, if commits, any|
|offence or self-immolation and adieu good-by from this world, responsibility|
rests on the Govt.
|2. That the office of the P. M. Of India informed vide letter No. 23/7/88 P.M. P/11|
|dt. 17.2.88. That there is no such fund by which the petitioner be pecuniary helped|
|or financially assisted, its embarrassing to learn that the Prime Minister of this|
|democratic nation has no such fund whereby a needy citizen of the country could|
|be afforded such facility, at the same time it is also well established that if a citizen|
|of the country commits suicide or any offence on account of poverty, lack of|
|shelter, unemployment etc., such negative response from or on behalf of P. M.|
|From P. M. Office, only encourages a citizen to commit an offence or suicide,|
|which is deadly against of the democratic values in democratic setup of a|
|country. The said response from the P. M.’s office is enough in itself to loose the|
|confidence in a democratic set up of a country by any citizen. It is very|
|unfortunate and subject of a deep thinking in all it is a big question mark for|
|( P. M. Letter )|
