Delhi BJP chief Satish Upadhyay Sunday said the party has offered a job to Dr Shelly Narang, wife of Pankaj Narang, the dentist who was beaten to death by a mob last week. She has been offered a job in one of the hospitals under the South Delhi Municipal Corporation (SDMC).
“I discussed it with the SDMC mayor and commissioner before promising the job to Narang’s wife. She is not a practising doctor but has a Bachelors degree in Dental Science. So, we offered her a job at any of the hospitals of the south corporation. We hope she will take it,” said Upadhyay.
He also said the BJP is giving the job on compassionate grounds as Narang was the sole breadwinner of the family and no one should politicise the issue.
Ashish Sood, general secretary of the Delhi BJP, said, “Dr Narang was held in high esteem by residents. With regard to their social contribution, we have offered a job to his wife on humanitarian grounds.”
Upadhyay also said RWA representatives from Vikaspuri had come to him, requesting more police patrolling and a police picket in the area.
He said their demand would be fulfilled soon.
