Tears well up in the eyes of a widow in Gorakhpur, whenever she remembers her deceased son who sacrificed his life for the motherland.

Sepoy Satyawan Singh of Ghorang village in Gorakhpur's Sant Kabir Nagar belonged to 17th battalion of the Rajput regiment. During the war he captured three posts and killed dozens of enemy soldiers. For showing extraordinary bravery, he was awarded the Vir Chakra. Today the martyr's widow mother and unmarried sister run from pillar to post for getting their official dues."Had my son been alive, there wouldn't have been a problem. I have a grown-up daughter to look after. I have to get her married, which will become possibly easily after we are given a petrol pump. The government is not listening to us. We also have problems of housing. I keep falling sick. We have to hire a vehicle every time to go to the hospital. We don't have any support or cooperation," says the weeping Kalavati, mother of Singh.

Satyawan's young sister of marriageable age is in a desperate search of a job for her family's survival. She says the Government promised a Petrol pump, but nothing has happened.

Is this kind of support & cooperation our Indian Government is giving to the families of Great Soldiers ?

This is very unfair that a soilder who sacrificed his life for the country,his family is suffering behind .It is the duty of the Government to atleast look after their problems.As an Indian soilder Sepoy Satyan Singh did his duty.If the Government promised them to give a petol pump it is their duty to keep their words.

I agree with you. these politicians never bother about their promises after election. Media also forget everything after a week of any tragedy . Only thing left for a life long is the pain and poorness of the people who has came over these situations.
