Government to trace out martyrs for felicitation and job: CM Hemant Soren


Commission formed to identify andolankaris, review on delayed hospital project

Kharsawan, Jan 1: Jharkhand chief minister Hemant Soren today reiterated that the government would spare no effort in tracing out martyrs and their relatives and arrange their felicitation and fulfil the promise made during the assembly polls in 2019.

Addressing the gathering after paying floral tributes at Shahid Sthal  in memory of  the martyrs of the Kharsawan firing incident which took place in 1948, the chief minister  flanked by state transport minister Champai Soren, social welfare minister Joba Manjhi, hosts of MLAs including Kharswan MLA Dasrath Gagrai, Chaibasa MLA Deepak Birua, Chakradharpur MLA Sukhram Oraon and Ichagarh MLA Sabita Mahato, reminded that it was their government which had traced out martyrs and their relatives of the Gua firing incident and arranged to give them government jobs.

“We are conscious of our poll promise and as we did for dependents of those who sacrificed their life in the Gua firing incident by giving them job we will do the same for dependents of those who have sacrificed their life for separate statehood agitation and felicitate them properly,” informed Soren.

Significantly, it was during the short tenure of the Hemant Soren government between 2013-14 that Gua firing incident martyrs dependents were given government jobs.

He also said that a commission has been set up to identify the andolankaris (freedom fighters for separate statehood) but there are problems as there is a long list of such andolankaris.

“We do not want to miss out on any of the andolankaris and want to reach out to all such andolankaris and their dependents and an action plan has already been made in this direction by the state government,” said Soren.

The chief minister also expressed commitment of the government to make a state as per the dreams of the martyrs who gave their life for creation of a separate state of Jharkhand.

Greeting masses of Jharkhand on New Year, Hemant Soren said that despite battling Covid-19 the government would try its best to take the state on path of development and appealed to the masses to be cautious and follow protocols of Covid-19 laid out by the government.

Answering to queries on delay in completion of the 500-bed hospital at Amda in Kharsawan, the chief minister said that the government is looking at early completion of all pending projects.

“We will soon review the reasons for the delay in completion of the hospital which is being constructed for more than eight years,” said Soren.

The chief minister, commenting on the deteriorating law and order, claimed that the government has never tried to hush up any crime and tried to probe into each incident with transparency and bring the culprits to book.

Meanwhile, Seraikela-Kharswan district administration arranged for guard of honour for the chief minister near the helipad site in Kharsawan. During a meeting with local MLAs at the PWD guest house in Kharsawan, the chief minister asked them to ensure that government schemes reach the last mile of the state.
