NO END TO SUFFERINGS
Every limb of life has suffered in Jammu and Kashmir, education, business, health, tourism and industries. In the past thirteen months we have remained mostly indoors courtesy government announcements. No stimulus package or financial intervention so far may force us to come on streets.
Government imposed a lockdown in Kashmir in the past five months saying that otherwise Covid-19 will spread. Even after five months of lockdown daily positive cases are going up. People are dying in the hospitals for the lack of care and oxygen. New LG should fix the responsibility and punish the officers responsible for such a mess in Kashmir.
Kashmir Chamber of Commerce and Industry (KCCI) have termed the indefinite lockdown of business establishments in Kashmir, especially in Srinagar, “as a serious infringement on the rights of the business community to earn a livelihood”. KCCI in a press statement recently said that they have extended full cooperation along with common people to the district administration of Srinagar but blamed the district magistrate of running around in circles since the previous five months. KCCI said that it seems oblivious to the fact that the business community of Kashmir is presently in the 13th month of a disruption which has wiped out enterprises and devastated the economy.
Comparing the lockdown and unlock in the rest of Covid infected places, KCCI in the statement said, “despite total cases numbering 5.35 lacs with a daily average of 1,700 cases since the previous two months Mumbai has now entered it’s Unlock 3.0 phase”.
