Rajasthan Chief Minister Ashok Gehlot awarded government jobs for relatives of the state’s 1971 Indo-Pak War martyrs on Thursday.
He made the statement while speaking at Amar Jawan Jyoti during a Vijay Diwas function.
Any dependent of those slain between August 15, 1947 and December 31, 1970 is given a government position, according to the current laws.
The new rule will extend the deadline to December 31, 1971, allowing families of soldiers killed in the 1971 India-Pakistan war to be appointed.
The new norm will be extended to include the son and daughter of the martyr’s daughter (Navasa-Navasi) as dependents, even if they are adopted, according to Gehlot.
He also stated that the martyr’s brother and sister’s son and daughter shall be counted as dependents.
Gehlot said he is proud to be the chief minister of a state where every household has a martyr’s attitude to preserve the country’s boundaries.
