Bengaluru, Dec 3, 2023: BJP Yuva Morcha National President Surya said on social media that it has been 10 days since Captain Pranjal was martyred in the service of our country.

He further said, I am CM Siddaramaiah and Deputy CM D.K. I request Shivkumar not to delay this and immediately release a compensation of Rs 50 lakh to the parents of Captain Pranjal.
Surya said, making the supreme sacrifice at the young age of 29 is a heroic act that will inspire every generation.
He said, I am CM Siddaramaiah and Deputy CM D.K. for not limiting our tribute to Captain Pranjal to one day and for taking inspiration from his memory to the youth. I request Shivkumar to name Jigani Main Road after Captain Pranjal. This will be a small but lasting tribute to honor the sacrifice of Pranjal.
