CM visits martyr’s family in Hamirpur
HAMIRPUR: While consoling the family of sepoy Ankush Thakur at their Karohta residence, Himachal chief minister Jai Ram Thakur said the sacrifices made by the jawans will not go waste and the nation under the leadership of PM Modi will give a befitting reply to the nefarious designs of the enemy.
It was the CM’s first visit to Hamirpur after the coronavirus pandemic broke out. He paid floral tributes to the martyr who had died during the face-off between India and China at Galwan Valley in Ladakh.
Thakur announced ₹20 lakh ex gratia grant to the family and said the state government is with them in this hour of distress. He also announced that a gate will be erected at Karohta in honour of the martyr and the primary health centre there will also be upgraded.
