Shame! PDP leader tries to encash COVID-19 outbreak
Brandishes philanthropy, seeks personal aggrandizement

Jammu, Mar 25: At a time when the entire populace of Jammu and Kashmir is at the brink of an unthinkable health crisis, a PDP leader is out to shamelessly brandish his philanthropy.
The PDP leader in question on Wednesday issued a detailed statement from his personal account, highlighting his greatness and seeking personal aggrandisement by declaring how he has donated a piece of land for a hospital building.
“People of Kashmir have gone through trying times since decades and the newly found deadly COVID-19 has compounded their problems again. The resilience shown by people of Kashmir to restart their lives after shutdown was commendable, but again this deadly novel Coronavirus has put lives in danger. We have only few well equipped hospitals here in Kashmir, the aim of donating one kanal land is to setup a well equipped hospital,” reads the statement issued by the leader in question.
He also promised to raise money to buy more land for a hospital at a time the government is struggling to arrange space for quarantine purpose, for people coming from outside Jammu and Kashmir. “This serves as an eye-opener for those who believe that Kashmiris will never rise again after the shutdown,” he said.
“Given the situation, PDP leader said that, the Valley fears the potentially disastrous consequences of the Coronavirus pandemic after four tests were found positive from last few days. Apprehensions abound that this may be just the tip of the iceberg" as several hundred people, most of whom had travelled to other countries, were placed under quarantine,” he was quoted as having said in a statement.
He goes on further, “There is a lack of manpower, machinery, and other infrastructure and on top of that the number of the people in the hospitals has increased. God forbid if China or Italy like situation grips Kashmir, people will die like animals here. The government run hospitals here lack specialised masks, ventilators, testing kits and space to establish special quarantine and isolation wards, so it's time to do something on individual level. He also requested others to donate for this noble cause and said, he will hold a meeting with various business heads and mohalla communities of the district in coming days to convenience them to donate for setting this well equipped hospital in area. The site for the new hospital will be finalised in a flash when the residents will pledge to pitch in.”
Now, when the entire populace is caged in homes, the PDP has sensed it as a favourable timing to make best of the situation.
However, he is being ridiculed by the netizens over getting involved in such cheap theatrics. “When people are bearing the brunt of the hard times, this PDP leader is trying to fish in the troubled waters. Even if he is out to donate a piece of land, why he is going public on this. What for is this charity when it serves the personal and vested interest of the PDP leader. Shame on him,” wrote a netizen on social media.
