Indian National Congress Manifesto with regards to Senior Citizens Issues

Indian National Congress #loksabhaelection2014 Manifesto with regards to Senior Citizens Issues:

Iam Unhappy and Happy with Congress party manifesto.

Iam unhappy because it has  not mentioned 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.

Iam happy because it does talks about Elders at various points such as: 
In page no. 8 it talks about PFRDA 2013(pension regulator body);
In page no 10 in 15 point agenda it mentions in point 1b) Pension and point 1d) Social security; 
In page 14 it talks about Pension cover, Old age Protection and Old age homes;
In page no 30 it talks about Universal Pension for the Elderly and Widows;
Also the manifesto does mentions two points which may benefit Senior Citizens if it makes Right to Health and Rastriya Swastya Bima Yojna(health insurance) Inclusive.
Check the Congress (INC) Election 2014 

Check the Manifesto website: http://inc.in/manifesto/ 

Will check other parties Manifesto also in few days, hope other parties have that Will to talk about our Elders and have Inclusive policy for them.......... Silver Innings urges political parties, civil 
society, media, government and community to have Empathy towards our Senior Citizens, one day 
we will too grow old......
