CM Jagan’s decision on compensation to Vizag gas leak victims grabs attention
The compensation amount announced by Chief Minister YS Jagan Mohan Reddy to Vizag gas leak victims has become a discussion topic of the state. Political parties like CPI, CPM and BJP have appreciated the CM for announcing Rs 1 crore ex gratia to kin of the gas leak deceased.
The reason for announcing such a big amount was that Jagan as an opposition leader had demanded the previous TDP government to pay Rs 1 crore to gas leak victims in East Godavari district. But, the then CM Chandrababu Naidu had announced Rs 25 lakh for families of gas leak deceased.
