L. Murugan recalled that in April 2020, 11 Opposition parties including the DMK had passed a resolution demanding that the AIADMK provide a compensation of ₹1 crore to the families
Tamil Nadu BJP president L. Murugan reminded DMK president M.K. Stalin of the resolution passed by the Opposition parties led by him in April 2020 demanding a solatium of ₹1 crore each to the families of doctors who lost their lives in the line of duty fighting COVID-19.
“Now that Mr. Stalin is the Chief Minister, he should provide ₹1 crore each to the families of the victims and not the ₹25 lakh announced on Wednesday. The announcement makes it seem as if the government has increased the solatium to ₹25 lakh. This is disappointing and shocking,” he said.

Mr. Murugan recalled that in April 2020, 11 Opposition parties including the DMK had passed a resolution demanding that the AIADMK government provide a compensation of ₹1 crore to the families of such doctors. In the same manner, the DMK had strongly opposed the reduction of compensation from ₹50 lakh to ₹25 lakh to frontline workers who die on COVID-19 duty, he said.
Saying one thing when in Opposition and doing the opposite while in power was not good. Hence, he demanded that the DMK government provide ₹1 crore to the families of the deceased doctors and a government job to one of their family members.EOM
