UP Chief Minister, Akhilesh Yadav, speaking at a function on  Thursday organised by the UP Sanskrit Sansthanam to honour Sanskrit scholars, said  those who went to jail during the emergency were the 'Loktantra Senani' (fighter for democracy).
"During the Neta ji regime, Samajwadi Party had started a pension scheme for the fighters, but it was stopped during the power of other governments. UP government is intent on safeguard the interests of such political pensioners, so we will bring an ordinance that the scheme can not be closed,  slashed in future."
The pension will be given ti those who were jailed under the Maintenance of Internal Security Act(MISA) and Defense of India Rules during 1975-1977. The scheme was implemented by the Mulayam Singh Yadav in 2006. And  all these pensioners get rupees 10,000 per month; free travel in government buses with one companion; and free medical treatment in government hospitals. 
At the event, Akhilesh reminded the awards for Sanskrit scholars were also discontinued during the previous Government, but Samajwadi Party is continuous friendly with the such dignitaries. 
On the request of Acharya Ram Yatna Shukla, who was bestowed 'Vishwa Bharti' award with a prize money of Rs 5 lakh, Akhilesh said that he was ready to setup a Central Sanskrit University in the State. "We can send a proposal for upgrading the existing Sanskrit University in Varanasi or we can  provide land for setting up a new university, but the people(BJP) are more superficial , and they are not real supporters of Sanskrit," he said. On the Ocassion Akhilesh presented awards to 22 Sanskrit  litterateurs.
