Jammu and Kashmir Apni Party (JKAP) on Thursday expressed gratitude to all frontline workers including civil and police administration for their compassionate services in preventing spread of coronavirus.
In a statement the party chief, Altaf Bukhari observed that the relentless pursuit of frontline warriors especially healthcare workers to care for those impacted by COVID19 exemplifies their commitment and dedication to protect health of people in J&K and beyond.
“JKAP salutes all these warriors including doctors, lab technicians, nurses, pharmacists, health and sanitation workers, ambulance drivers, ward staff, other paramedical staff, policemen, media persons food and revenue department officials, home delivery agents and other officials of the civil and police administration who are providing basic necessities as partners to knockdown the pandemic,” Bukhari observed.
He said despite lacking in equipment, staff and protective gears, the healthcare workers were serving the humanity selflessly. “And it is not just about them. Every individual has a family to worry about, and it is the same from the family’s point of view. Apart from the doctors and other healthcare workers, our frontline heroes are putting themselves in harm’s way to do their utmost to save our lives,” Bukhari remarked.
He appealed people to stay home and follow the health advisories in letter and spirit in order to cope up with dangers posed by the deadly virus. “Faced with this unprecedented situation, JKAP believes that if the COVID19 outbreak is not effectively and promptly contained with the help and cooperation of general public, it will inflict even greater harm to the lives, safety and health of many more people, and exert a severe impact on the economic and social development in Jammu and Kashmir like other parts of the world,” he opined.
The JKAP President however, remarked with optimism the current difficulties posed by the COVID19 were only temporary. “If we all make concerted efforts with confidence and resolve and take a science-based and targeted approach, we will definitely win the final victory in the all-out global war against COVID-19,” Bukhari said.
