Bhisent,son of late Albert Ekka,hopes his grievance related with the land will be addressed by the Congress General Secretary Rahul Gandhi.”We told him our problem.We are happy that we met him”,smiles Bhisent.
Bhisent and his mother Balamdin,wife of Ekka,a soldier who died fighting in the 1971 Indo-Pak war,met Rahul and told him that the five acre land allotted to them by the state government was disputed and as a result,they could not make use of it.
Bhisent,who was just nine month old when Ekka had made supreme sacrifice,also asked Rahul to help him get a job.”Rahulji is so nice.He patiently heard us”,said Balamdin.
Ekka was posthumously awarded with the country’s highest gallantry award-the Param Vir Chakra.Both Balamdin and Bhisent have lots of praise for the Congress General Secretary.’He assured all help”,said Bhisent.
To honour the Param Vir Chakra awardee and his family,the erstwhile Bihar government had allotted the land to the family in Gumla district without inquiring into its title.The dispute is pending in the court.
Rahul,who placed wreath at the Bhagwan Birsa Munda Samadhisthal in Ranchi this morning, left for Bokaro to conclude his two-day engagement in Jharkhand.
