Central government employees and pensioners question government on delay in releasing DA/DR frozen during Covid

The employees have been demanding the government to release the amount ever since. Government employees and pensioners ask why the government is dilly-dallying on this critical issue even as they are spending thousands of crores on development projects, including writing off loans of big corporate houses.
