Dear Sir,

We appreciate your efforts to improve the quality of life for the
people of Bihar by taking some difficult decisions in the past over
nine months of your regime.

However, we the media persons from bihar and and biharis in general
are concerend about the non payment of salary to Mr Chandeshwar Prasad .


Chandeshwar Prasad, who won the award way back in 1971, has been
working as a liaison officer in the Bihar State Road Transport
Corporation (BSRTC) for the past 22 years. The BSRTC has been unable
to pay the employees' salary for quite some time now.

His plight has been highlighted in media but it has not helped him much.

Therefore we request you to kindly personally look into the matter and
grant Mr Prasad his dues so that he can seek treatment for the kindney
problems.

We, the media persons of Bihar who represent the voice of the people,
request you to kindly clear Mr Prasad's dues and set an example of a
welfare government.

Bihar's only Arjuna in dire

Jai Narain Pandey

Patna, August 31, 2006

INDIA CELEBRATED the birth anniversary of hockey legend Major Dhyan
Chand on Tuesday and the President honoured sportspersons with Arjuna
Awards. But Bihar's lone Arjuna awardee has been waging a battle for
survival for very long.

Chandeshwar Prasad, who won the award way back in 1971, has been
working as a liaison officer in the Bihar State Road Transport
Corporation (BSRTC) for the past 22 years. The BSRTC has been unable
to pay the employees' salary for quite some time now. And even if it
comes once in a while, it's given in instalments.

Prasad has a kidney problem and wants to go outside the state for
treatment. But the government has no money to pay his salary. "I am
not asking for any favour. I just want my dues to be paid," said the
athlete.

Prasad, who was the captain of the Indian football team in 1971 and
was selected for the Asian XI team in 1969, said he had been paid
accumulated amounts of Rs 75,000 and Rs 52,000 some time back.

The man, who was the stopper back of the Indian team from 1964 to 1971
and captained Mohun Bagan (1969-71) and Mohammedan Sporting in 1973,
said he met Chief Minister Nitish Kumar but nothing happened.

Prasad on Tuesday gave an application to the Minister for Art, Culture
and Youth Affairs Janardan Singh Sigriwal during an award ceremony
here and sought funds for his treatment.
