Kin of Hyderabad blasts victims to get govt jobs
Hyderabad: The Andhra Pradesh government on Thursday announced that it will provide jobs to the kin of the 17 people killed as well as those permanently disabled in last month`s twin bomb blasts at Dilsukhnagar here.
This was decided by the state Cabinet, which met here after a gap of three months. The Cabinet also approved a legislation that enables provision of government jobs to persons killed in terrorist and Maoist violence.
The proposed legislation would also cover those permanently disabled in such violence in the state, according to Information and Public Relations Minister D K Aruna.
