Earlier in the day, Kejriwal visited the family of Narendra Singh in Sonipat, Haryana, who was slaughtered mercilessly by Pakistani troops along the international border near Jammu. He made an announcement that his government will amend a rule on donating ex-gratia of Rs 1 crore and a job to the next of kin provided the martyr’s permanent address at the time of joining service was in Delhi.
Kejriwal was affirmative about holding a cabinet meeting next week to bring this amendment into force. “There is a lacuna in this rule as several families (martyrs/families) have settled in Delhi later. So, we will change this rule and bring changes in a manner so that we are able to include sacrifices made by martyrs like Narender and are able to provide this ex-gratia grant and a job to the next of kin of Narender ji,” the Chief Minister added.
AAP leader also informed that Kumar had joined forces in 1988, during which time Haryana was mentioned as his permanent address. In this case, he was given the knowledge that Kumar along with his family has been residing in Delhi for the past 8-10 years.
Kejriwal said that his government strongly condemn this coward act. He said that the brutal manner and torturous way by which the Pakistani troops killed Kumar is giving birth to a raging anger in the country. He said, “There is growing anger not just in this village or Haryana, but across the country for how long will Pakistan keep killing our soldiers like this.”
Targeting the central government and questioning Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s inaction towards Pakistan, Kejriwal said, “If writing love letters won’t do, will cutting cake on their (the then PM Nawaz Sharif) birthday help. After all, for how long will our soldiers tolerate this. This is not acceptable to the country. We want action, we don’t want speeches”
