Jaunpur, July 6 (UNI) Two freedom fighters have demanded public honour of Railway Minister Lalu Prasad for providing employment to the great grand daughters of the great leader Tatya Tope. In a letter to Prime Minister Dr Manmohan Singh, the great freedom fighters and former MLAs -- Nageshwar Dwivedi and Keshri Prasad Panday -- had urged that Mr Prasad should be honoured publicly for the good cause he had done.
''Mr Prasad had set-up a good example both in the world and society by providing jobs to the great grand daughters of Tatya Tope in railways,'' the duo said while talking to UNI here.
In a similar manner, attention should be paid towards the present generation of other freedom fighters, who were struggling for survival, the former MLAs noted. Help should be lended to the widow of writer Pt Shyam Narayan, who wrote 'Haldighati', as she was striving hard in Azamgarh district, they added.

These shameless MLAs who are supposedly Freedom fighters are by all means fake.Because most of the Genunine freedom fighers never aspired for any MLA or MP posts after independence. Most of the pensions are being given to gake FFs just bcuz they are old enough to get the pension even though they were never involved in the struggle. In AP , father of MLA from nalgonda was put in jail before independece bcuz as a govt servant he usurped govt funds. Now, he is getting FF pension was given land worth crores on NH9,while guenuine FFs are still fighting for a pension. Sham on congress.
If you are not known the facts then dont comment like this.........
who is correct or not not you are the not the person to decide.
