Ludhiana: In an initiative to help kith and kin of CRPF jawans who died in the Pulwama attack, SEL Manufacturing Company Limited has decided to offer jobs to one family member of each martyr.
Executive director and CEO SEL, VK Goel said the decision was taken by chairman and managing director R S Saluja, who has personally written to the families of martyrs expressing his grief and offering them job in any of the company’s units in Punjab Haryana and Himachal Pradesh.
“I on behalf of more than 10,000 employees of my company offer my heartfelt condolence and support to you and assure you that we all stand by the family in this hour of grief. Our company shall offer one job to anyone in your family in any of the locations where our factories and offices are located,” the letter written to one of the family members by Saluja read.
As many as 44 jawans were martyred in Pulwama in a Fidayeen attack on February 14.
“The entire nation is pained and anguished at the dastardly attack and it’s time that we all join to share the grief of the families and do our bit. Nothing can compensate the supreme sacrifice but this is a small gesture from the group to help the families of martyrs. We have resolved to stand by the martyrs and do our bit. This is a token of our love, gratitude and respect for our armed forces and their families,” said president corporate HR Manuj Mehta.
