NEW DELHI: Bharat Pensioners' Samaj (BPS), the largest and oldest organization of pensioners in India on Saturday came out to help the victims of floods in Jammu an& Kashmir with MONEYand relief material. 

A BPS delegation met Dr Jitendra Singh, minister of state in PMO, and handed over a cheque as donation to the Prime Minister's National Relief FUND (PMNRF). It has also dispatched two trucks full of relief material including ration and clothes to Jammu and Kashmir. 

Acknowledging the contribution made by BPS, Singh said that while the MONEY and material contributed by them were going to be of immense help in carrying out the relief work, the gesture of these elder retired officials was of far greater importance. "It is like a blessing for all of us who are engaged in pulling Jammu & Kashmir out of this ordeal," Singh said. 

Expressing solidarity with the people of Jammu and Kashmir in their hour of distress, Secretary General of BPS, SC Maheshwari informed Singh that their organization is a conglomerate of 648 organizations of pensioners from different departments with branches spread all over India and in the days to come, more donations for Jammu & Kashmir relief would be handed over on behalf of these different groups of pensioners. 

Maheshwari said that BPS has also launched a campaign for organ donation and wherever needed in the rescue and relief of flood victims in Jammu & Kashmir, they would be ready to help medically also.
