If required, I will also talk to the L-G and the Centre in this regard,” said Kejriwal. “I can understand the pain and suffering of these people who are unable to connect to their family members and children. It is the responsibility of every government to find the missing people,” added the chief minister. The development came after many farmer unions, as well as people from various organisations, reached out to the Delhi government and CM Kejriwal.
The government has put up a list of 115 people imprisoned in various jails of Delhi in connection with the clashes so that families can reach out. “The people whose family members are missing can look at this list to know if their family members are amongst those arrested. I hope that many people who have gone missing will be traced through this list,” the chief minister further said.
