An Indian Army jawan posted in Dibrugarh (Assam) wrote to Prime Minister Narendra Modi seeking protection for his parents, who he said live in constant fear since they were warned by local heavyweights not to build their house under the PM Awas Yojana scheme in Madhya Pradesh district of Dewas.
After learning of the army jawan Jasrath Singh Sisodiya’s letter to the PM, the chief minister of Madhya Pradesh, Kamal Nath, swung into action, directing the Dewas district administration and police to take immediate action to ensure the safety of the parents of the jawan and his other family members in the West MP district of Tonk Khurd.
According to informed sources in Bhopal and Dewas, the parents of the army jawan Jasrath Singh had recently received first aid to build their own house under PM Awas Yojana.
But just as they began building the house under the scheme for housing for all by 2022, some of the area’s heavyweights came along and threatened to kill them and set their house on fire if they went ahead with the building.
The parents of the army jawan lodged a complaint at any forum, including the police station, Nagar Parishad, and Tehsil. Mother Jaskunwar of the army jawan and wife Madhvi also reportedly raised the issue at Jan Sunwai of the district police last Tuesday.
Kamal Nath has now taken note of the media coordinator for the CM, Narendra Singh Saluja. “The CM immediately asked the Dewas District Administration to act on the matter and ensure the proper safety of the jawan’s family in his native place. We keep track of what action local police and administration are taking against the alleged wrongdoers,” Saluja confirmed.
