A day after the wife of slain Bharatiya Janata Yuva Morcha (BJYM) leader Praveen Nettaru was terminated, Karnataka Chief Minister Siddaramaiah on Saturday said, Nutan Kumar will be reappointed to her occupation on "humanitarian" grounds.
In order to advance PFI's goal of establishing Islamic rule in India by 2047, Nettaru was killed with sharp weapons as part of its plan to incite communal hatred and violence among members of one community.
“After a new government comes in, it is a natural process to dismiss the temporary employees who were appointed by the previous government from the government service. Not only Praveen Nettaru’s wife but more than 150 contract workers have already been dismissed from service. There is no government interference in this,” CM Siddaramaiah tweeted.
“Considering this as a special case, the Nutan will be re-appointed on the basis of humanity,” he tweeted.
Earlier, Nutan's state government position was terminated, and the government ordered the termination of all contract recruitments by the previous administration.
She was one of those whose jobs had been terminated in the natural course since she was taken on a contract basis for the tenure of the BJP government led by Basavaraj Bommai in the Chief Minister's Office.
The Congress has clarified its move after the BJP condemned the decision.
“Due to the communal hatred of PFI, a terrorist organisation nurtured by the Congress party has removed the wife of Praveen Nettaru from service. Our government had provided the job of DC of Mangalore to the wife of Praveen Nettaru, who was killed by the PFI goons. It is condemnable,” BJP said in a tweet.
Nutan lost her employment as the Congress government ordered to suspend all the past government's enrollment on an agreement premise.
