Provide jobs to kin of deceased govt. staff: Vaithilingam

Pondicherry June 26. The former Chief Minister and Congress legislator, V. Vaithilingam, today expressed dismay at the `irresponsiveness' on the part of departments providing jobs on compassionate grounds to the next of kin of government employees who died in harness.

Addressing mediapersons here, he said many candidates were waiting for long to get jobs under the scheme introduced by the government to relieve the sufferings of families on the death of their breadwinners.

The Lt. Governor or the Chief Minister should launch a special drive and the scheme should be implemented on war footing, he said.
