Generosity of Delhi Chief Minister

New Delhi: Press reports say that Kejriwal, the Chief Minister of Delhi, a few days ago, announced a grant of one crore of rupees as a compensation to the family of Ram Krishna Grewal, who committed suicide allegedly on the issue of One Rank One Pension.

This raises one simple, but important, question. This huge amount is to be paid from the taxpayer’s money. Are there rules and regulation guiding the purposes,occasions,conditions and the quantum of amount of compensation? Will Kejriwal be prepared to pay such amounts to the soldiers from Delhi who lay down their lives in repelling the attacks on our country? It is for the intellectuals to ponder over.
