Yogi Adityanath had given Rs 4 lakh ex-gratia to the deceased jawan’s family.
The family of deceased Border Security Force constable Prem Sagar in Deoria has said that the Uttar Pradesh government humiliated them when officials took away the AC, new curtains, sofa set and carpet put in their house after Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath’s visit on Friday.
Officials had made VIP arrangements for the CM’s visit by installing an AC, new curtains, sofa set and carpet in the living room. However, they were soon dismantled and taken away once the CM left.
“They installed an AC, sofa set, lay a carpet on the floor and arranged for a generator to ensure smooth power supply. When the CM left, they took away everything,” said Daya Shankar, brother of the slain jawan.
During his visit, Adityanath handed over a cheque for Rs 4 lakh to the family. He also promised jobs to Sagar’s children and said that a martyr’s memorial and a girls’ inter-college will be set up in the memory of the slain trooper.
The administration said these were temporary arrangements for a VIP guest’s visit. “If a guest comes for a visit, we have to make arrangements and we have to take care of the facilities he is accustomed to,” Additional District Magistrate Virendra Kumar Dohrey told The Indian Express.
“However, I do not have information about when the AC and other things were removed from the house,” he said.
Head Constable Prem Sagar was martyred in Poonch on May 1 and his body is said to have been mutilated by the Pakistan Army.
