 Former legislator and Jammu Kashmir Apni Party (JKAP) leader Haji Mumtaz Ahmad Khan on Wednesday demanded immediate evacuation of Jammu and Kashmir labourers who are stranded in different parts of India due to the Coronavirus crisis that has resulted into a countrywide lockdown.
In a statement issued here, Khan expressed deep concern about the condition of these labourers especially belonging to different areas of Jammu division who are stuck in different states of the country.
“Over five hundred labourers from different areas of district Reasi like Gulabgarh, Chasana, Mahore, Panasa, Nayabat Chakalwala, Budan, Thuroo, Arnas, Gool, Sangaldan are stranded in different states of the country like Utrakhand, Himachal Pradesh, Punjab, Hyderabad and other states. Some labourers from Reasi are also stuck in Jammu and other districts of J&K. They should be immediately brought back to their homes in view of the alarming spread of COVID-19,” the former legislator from Gulabgarh demanded.
“In the backdrop of the Coronavirus scare affecting the livelihoods of daily wage earners, the J&K government must urgently facilitate evacuation of the stranded labourers of J&K especially Jammu division whose families are direly awaiting for their safe return,” the JKAP leader observed.
