The Tripura government announced on December 25 that it would provide jobs to a member of such families who have lost their dear ones to political violence before March 9, 2018.
The Biplab Deb-led BJP-IPFT government assumed office on that day, ending 25 years of Left rule in the Northeastern state.
State Law Minister Ratan Lal Nath said, “Many applications have been received from families that were victims of political violence before the present government came to power and a committee was constituted to scrutinise the applications.”
The six-member committee, headed by the law minister, scrutinised ten applications in the first meeting held on December 24.
Seven were eligible for employment, but the educational qualification of one candidate was below eighth standard, Nath said.
“According to our criteria, any candidate having educational qualification below the eighth standard would not be entertained. So we have referred it to the next Cabinet meeting for considering financial help to him,” the minister told reporters. (PTI)
