Immediately provide job & compensation

Even though eight months have passed, the state government is yet to provide compensation and jobs to the families of those who died in the 21 May, 2019 Tirap massacre, in which 11 people, including MLA Tirong Aboh, lost their lives. This, despite the fact that Chief Minister Pema Khandu himself announced in June last year on the floor of the state assembly that all the families would be provided with monetary compensation and jobs. The failure to provide compensation and jobs is a serious breach of trust. The state government should immediately fulfill its promises.
Those killed included the security personnel of late Tirong Aboh. The government is very prompt in providing jobs and compensation when high-ranking officers are killed in the line of duty. Two of the PSOs of late Aboh – Ponhang Agi and B Siksa – were also killed in the attack. They made the supreme sacrifice in the line of duty. The government in its own notification in 2017 had made it clear that any police person who is killed in the line of duty, irrespective of their rank, would be given compensation of Rs 50 lakhs. Adding to it, the CM also promised to provide compensation. Therefore it is shocking to know that till now the affected families have been deprived of their rights. The government should immediately take initiative and provide jobs as well as compensation to the bereaved families of the 21 May, 2019 massacre.
