Chief Minister Naveen Patnaik has announced ex-gratia of Rs 25 lakh each from Chief Minister’s Relief Fund (CMRF)to the next of the kin of the two Odia soldiers who laid their lives for Country.

Both of them were martyred in the Galwan Valley in Ladakh in scuffle with Chinese Army.

CM Mr.Patnaik also expressed deep sorrow over the untimely death of the Jawans-- Chandrakant Pradhan and Nanduram Soren.

He praised their bravery and courage saying that they have made supreme sacrifice for the motherland.

Naveen conveyed his deep sympathies to the bereaved families.

State mourned the deaths of their sons killed in a clash with Chinese troops in Eastern Ladakh amid tales of pride and sacrifice.

Chandrakanta Pradhan (28) hailed from Biarpanga village in Kandhamal district's Raikia Block and Naib Subedar Nanduram Soren belonged to the Rairangpur area of Mayurbhanj.

Chandrakanta, who belonged to a tribal community, was among the 20 Indian soldiers killed in the violent clash with Chinese troops in eastern Ladakh's Galwan Valley.

"My son was highly sincere towards his duty. He was courageous, simple and hard working. We got the information about his martyrdom on Tuesday night," said Karunakar Pradhan, the slain Jawan's father.

Chandrakanta joined the Army in 2014, he said, adding that he had last visited home around two months ago.

People were saddened  at 43-year-old Soren's village in Bijatala block's Champauda in the tribal-dominated Mayurbhanj district.

After completing Class XII from Rairangpur College, he joined the Army in 1997 as he was very keen to serve the motherland.

Soren has left behind his wife and three school-going daughters.

The residents of the village and nearby areas are waiting for the body to arrive so that they can pay tributes to the martyr.
