Apni Party deputation meets family members of terror attack victim Deepu
Manjit Singh demands Govt job for Deepu’s wife
Majalata, June 05 (Scoop News)- A deputation of Apni Party leaders led by Provincial President, Jammu, and Former Minister S. Manjit Singh today met deceased family members of Deepak Kumar also known as Deepu who was killed by terrorists recently in Anantnag and extended support to the next of kins of the deceased.
Deepu was a circus worker who was killed near Jagland Mandi in Anantnag town.
To express their solidarity with the bereaved family members, the Apni Party leaders led by S. Manjit Singh met the family members at their village in Thail village in Bilaspur Majalta following directions from Apni Party President Syed Mohammed Altaf Bukhari sahib.
“We came here to meet the family members who are in poverty. I am shocked to see that their house has no approach road, no clean drinking water supply nor do they have their own house,” said Manjit Singh.
He said that “Deepu belongs to a dalit family and his family has no other source of earning after the targeted killing of Deepu. All the six members in the family including his father, brother, sister-in-law, their two children and wife of Deepu are living in extreme poverty and they need to be provided financial support by the Gov.”
He expressed anguish over why no senior Govt official did not visit the family and see the condition of their mud house which has no facilities, no electricity or drinking water.
“It appears the family is being discriminated against because they are dalits,” he said, condemning the discriminatory approach of the authorities.
In this situation, he demanded that the LG J&K Manoj Sinha should personally visit the family members of Deepu and extend support for the construction of concrete house, approach road, and clean drinking water.
“The poor basic amenities of Majalta's village has exposed the false claims of the authorities that they have developed Jammu and Kashmir. The village is in the worst condition with people lacking basic amenities,” he said.
He further stated that “The Govt should ensure a proper house, approach road to the house, and Govt job to the wife of Deepu who has given birth to her child two days back.”
He said that the benefit of Govt schemes should be provided to the family members to upgrade their living standard socially and economically.
He also appealed to the social and other organizations to come forward to help the family members of Deepu.
He however criticized the local administration and said that the senior officials in civil administration should visit the family members of Deepu and help them accordingly.
The deputation members include Senior Provincial Vice President Jammu, Ex-MLA Faqir Nath, District President Udhampur, Hans Raj Dogra, Apni Party Spokesperson, Raqeeq Ahmed Khan, SC State Coordinator, Bodh Raj Bhagat, Provincial President Youth Wing, Jammu, Vipul Bali, District General Secretary Udhampur, Sat Pal Chalotra, District President Udhampur, Ajeet Singh, Sarpanch, Sansar Singh, Media Coordinator, Sandeep Vaid and others.
