The families of the martyrs of Meena and Pulwama terror attacks submitted a memorandum to the Raj Bhavan in which Manju Jat, Madhubala, Sundari Devi and Renu Singh sought permission for euthanasia.
Rajasthan Chief Minister’s reaction
Rajasthan Chief Minister Ashok Gehlot on Tuesday hit out at the BJP, saying some of its leaders were insulting the widows of martyrs and using them for political mileage.
The relatives of three CRPF jawans killed in the 2019 Pulwama terror attack arrived at Congress leader Sachin Pilot’s residence and demanded a meeting with the party high command, accusing the state government of not fulfilling the promises made to them.
Without directly naming BJP Rajya Sabha MP Kirori Lal Meena, who was sitting on a dharna with the widows of the martyrs, Gehlot said in a statement, “Some BJP leaders are using the wives of the martyrs for political gains and insulting them.” . mileage. This has never been the tradition of Rajasthan. I condemn it.
The demands of the widows include installation of statues of martyred jawans, providing jobs to their kin on compassionate grounds and construction of roads in their villages.
Gehlot said in his statement that the widow of Hemraj Meena, who was martyred in the attack, wants to install the third statue, while two others are already installed in the Government College Sangod and a park in his native village Vinod Kalan.
“Keeping in mind the families of other martyrs, such a demand is not justified,” the chief minister said in a statement in Hindi. Rohitash Lamba’s wife is seeking a job for her brother-in-law on compassionate grounds, but if she gets a job, then the relatives or relatives of all the widows of the martyrs will start putting undue pressure on them.
“Should we create such a difficult situation in front of the wives of the martyrs because the rules made at present are made on the basis of past experiences. How can it be justified to deprive the children of the martyrs of their rights and give jobs to others?” What will happen when the children of the martyrs grow up?’
