Mr Jakhar stated that due to this reason, he and his party was forced to stage a protest to make union government wake up from its slumber.Mr Jakhar that the people killed in Iraq were from different states of the country. So it was duty of the center government to help its people in distress. He added that becoming a part of the tragedy the of Mosul victims have gone through, the Congress led Punjab government has announced Rs 5 lakhs ex gratia for each and every victim's family. The center government too should have stepped in. He stated that the poor had to go to earn bread and butter other countries, which are not even safe enough. This should be matter of grave concern for the center government.He added that phenomenon has laid bare hollow promises of Modi government of creating 2 crore jobs every year. He demanded Prime Minister to seek apology from nation for its failure to provide jobs to people and forcing them to seek jobs in unsafe countries like Iraq.Mr Jakhar stated that had the Indian Embassy helped these victims of Iraq tragedy in time, the precious lives could have been saved.
