GANGTOK: Sikkim Chief Minister Prem Singh Tamang on Saturday said his government will provide jobs to kins of Army personnel who lay down their lives in the service of the nation.

Addressing the annual meeting of the Ex-Servicemen Association of Sikkim (ESAS) at the Saramsa Garden in Pakyong district, he said this initiative is aimed at honouring the sacrifices made by the Armymen and offering crucial support to their families.

"A family member of an Army personnel who sacrifices his life in service will be given a compassionate appointment in the state government, similar to the one given to the families of the Sikkim Scouts," he said.
