Aam Aadmi Party #loksabhaelection2014 Manifesto with regards to Senior Citizens Issues

My view: Aam Aadmi Party  #loksabhaelection2014 Manifesto with regards to Senior Citizens Issues:

Iam Totally Unhappy and Sad with Aam Aadmi Party #AAP manifesto for general election, had expected them to cover major issues of 104 million Senior Citizens, 10% of total population and around 23% of total voting population.

It's actually shocking and surprising, they have fully ignored and neglected Senior Citizens issues despite sending them constant reminder since 25th Nov 2012 when the party was formed and they asked for opinion for making their party constitution. I had written Open letter to party and they had acknowledge the same too.

My view:
The AAP has not mentioned Senior Citizens anywhere.
On page 18 they mentioned Social Security for unorganized sector
On page 16 - this is only place they have direct mention about Old Age Pension

Indirect way, on page 8 they have mention Right to Health and on page 12 they have mention that they will Facilitate Social Security Net and  On page 21 under PWD(cognitive disability); all this might be useful to Elders if this policy is Inclusive.

Iam unhappy because it has  not mentioned anywhere Senior Citizens as focus agenda and not mentioned in Table of Content; it has totally ignored NPOP( National Policy of Older Person) 1999, the Mission statement of Indian Govt. For 104 million Senior Citizens ; also there is no mention of Alzheimer's and Dementia.

It's good they have mention Animal welfare but forgot Our Elders, Human beings......
