In a statement issued here, the Chief Minister said that the centre may adopt any policy towards the martyrs of the country but his government is committed to honour the families of such sons of soil. He said that as per the policy of state government the family of martyr Amritpal singh will be given financial assistance worth Rs 1 crore.
