TDP chief seeks a job to Lance Naik family

Naidu urges AP Govt to give Rs 1 Cr ex gratia
AMARAVATI: TDP National President and former Chief Minister N. Chandrababu Naidu on Friday urged the AP Government to provide Rs. 1 Cr ex gratia to the family members of late Lance Naik Sai Teja who died in the recent IAF chopper crash in Coonoor.
Naidu said Sai Teja rose to join the personal security staff of the country’s Chief of Defence Staff within nine years of joining the Indian Army. He belonged to Erraballi panchayat in Kurabalakota mandal in Chittoor district.
The TDP chief wrote a letter to AP Chief Secretary Sameer Sarma, urging him to provide a job to one of Sai Teja’s family members. Sai Teja joined the army at the age of 20 and he was now martyred at 29 years.
Naidu said that Sai Teja was born in a tribal family and made a huge sacrifice in the service of the country. With determination, hard work and commitment, he could get a place in the personal security cover for the chief of the tri-services.
Naidu said the helicopter crash led to the untimely death of Lance Naik Teja. He stressed the need for the State Government to extend all possible help to the bereaved family.
