J&K Hoteliers Club has expressed serious concern over rising number of positive coronavirus cases in Kashmir.
While hailing the government, Advisor to LG BaseerA Khan and district administration for taking prompt steps in containing the spread, J&K Hoteliers Club Chairman Mushtaq A Chaya said the government should ensure extra measures should be taken to prevent further spread of the virus by imposing strict lockdown.
Chaya also appealed people to stay indoors and ensure that civil curfew is successful. “Government should ensure strict lockdown and tap the movement of the the travellers visiting Kashmir from outside the states. Many labourers have also infiltrated into Kashmir from various states recently whose movement need to be checked to prevent the spread of this virus,” he said.
J&K Hoteliers Club also urged the Centre and LG Murmu to immediately restore 4G services and maintain 24×7 power and water supply besides other essential services should be uninterrupted.
“Entire population is under lockdown and most of the broadband services are installed only at offices. People use mobile date for the access of the vital information which is very crucial at this time of crisis. Government should immediately restore 4G services so that they can utilize it for useful information and patients can also be benefited. The services are also required for the students who have not been to schools or college for past eight months. High speed internet can help them remain updated with their academic curriculum,” he said.
