Dharna of Kerala Lottery Sellers

Posted by Ideal Solutions

Hunderds of Thousand people find their living in Kerala depending on the kerala lotteries run by the department of lotteries under the finance ministry of Kerala. Many of them are Agents but the most are retail sellers who sell around 50 to 100  Kerala lotteries every day. For the welfare of these people many schemes are introduced by the government of Kerala including welfare pensions, and many other schemes. Onam Bonus is the most important allowance given by the department of Kerala Lotteries to its basic Kerala lottery sellers who are joined in the welfare contributory schemes. Kerala lottery sellers are paying a small amounts in intervals and Kerala government lottery department adds to this to provide bonus, pensions and other relief funds.



But this Thiruvonam is not their happiest for more of the Kerala Lottery sellers. Most of the root sellers who sell the kerala lotteries in bus stands and road sides with out any shop or some thing may have expected that their Onam bonus will be released before Thiruvonam. If its correct this time Onam bonus for the kerala lottery sellers is around 4000 rupees, which would have been a great relief for them to meet the onam expenses of their family. By insufficient funds or non planing many kerala lottery sellers had to go bare hand on 28th of August, 2015 the day before Thiruvonam. The next working day fall on 31st of August Monday. On that day many kerala lottery sellers assembled at every kerala lottery offices at district head quarters hoping for their bonus to be released. As they came to know that they will not get their bonus even on Monday, the kerala lottery sellers held a dharna in front of the Kerala Lottery office Palakkad to show their protest.
