Delhi government will bear the cost of entire education of the daughter and also of the ongoing treatment of the wife of DTC driver late Ashok Kumar, who was beaten to death on Sunday.
The government decision has been communicated to the family of late Ashok Kumar, with whom the transport department established contact again on Monday.
Transport minister Mr Gopal Rai had earlier on Sunday already announced an immediate compensation of Rs five lakh for the family and a permanent job in the transport department for one member of the family.
Following directions from the chief minister, the transport department is drawing up an emergency plan for deployment of marshals in DTC buses. The department in consultation with the department of home will declare its plan very soon about the utilization of home guard jawans for the purpose. It has also been decided to plan installation of CCTV cameras in buses at the earliest.
The government has taken a strict view of the completely unjustified and illegal strike by DTC employees.
It is beyond any reasonable understanding that when the transport minister promptly went to the Rohini Depot on Sunday and assured the employees that any demand put forward by them would be duly considered, despite that public of Delhi was put to extreme inconvenience due to a politically motivated strike.
The government will deal sternly with the strike, which is completely illegal, and it was called without giving any prior notice and appeals by the government for talks were not heeded to.
Employees are advised to return to work immediately in their own interest, failing which they will have to face serious repercussions, since the government will not tolerate any further public inconvenience and indiscipline in the national capital.
