JAMMU: The Democratic Progressive Azad Party (DPAP) Chairman Ghulam Nabi Azad on Friday said that he will take all possible measures and ensure the fire victims of Bhaderwah and those injured in tragic road accident in Doda’s Assar receive proper compensation and relief from the govern- ment. Azad visited fire victims of Bhaderwah where several residential houses and commercial establishments were gutted in fire, rendering several families homeless and many more jobless.
He said it is the responsibility of government to rehabilitate all those who were making their bread and butter from these commercial establishments and have lost everything in the devastating fire.
“I share your concern since you are left homeless due to this fire incident. You have to face the tough times in view of coming winters. So, I will speak to the district authorities to ensure you are provided adequate relief to overcome this winter without facing any tough challenges,” he told the fire victims at Bhaderwah.
Azad said that in addition of that the fire victims, who lost their shops and other businesses should also be provided soft loans by the government since they can’t afford to rebuild their lives in absence of proper support.
“They have meager resources and may not be able to revive their businesses. I request the government to provide them soft loans so that their families may not suffer,” he said.
Azad later travelled to GMC Doda and met those who were injured in a deadly accident.
He also inquired about their health from the hospital authorities and urged them to provide all the possible treatment and support so that they resume their day-to-day activities fast.
He said most of the injured in this accident have families to feed and may not afford treatment outside in private hospitals.
“So, they must be provided every possible treatment and medicine by the hospital authorities,” he said.
