EARLY TIMES REPORT

JAMMU, Mar 27: Kishtwar as well as adjoining Doda district today observed complete lockdown on the 3rd day of 21 day country wide instruction issued by the Government of India as a precautionary measure to deal with the spread of Coronavirus.
People in twin Districts offered Friday prayers at homes as was appealed by the government as well as the local administration. A call in this regard was also made by the clergy in both the districts and urged the people to follow the instructions from government and administration in letter and spirit.
As per the details available with Early Times, despite heavy rains that lashed the whole Chenab valley since last evening, the Jammu and Kashmir police guarding the roads and streets along with troops of CRPF ensured that there is no movement of people and defiance of lockdown order.
A police personal on duty told the Early Times that senior officials had instructed them to be strict and vigilant in their duties for ensuring that the lockdown decision is strictly implemented on ground. He said that despite heavy rainfall they are performing their duties and called upon the local people to cooperate with them and stay at home.
“We are duty bound towards safeguarding the nation— let us stand tall and play our part in safeguarding ourselves as well as the society by staying at home,” said another police officer performing his duty amid heavy rainfall in Kishtwar District.
Meanwhile, as compared to yesterday’s hardships, the people associated with the essential services by and large had a smooth sailing today following the issuance of passes by the district administration.
Speaking to Early Times, the shopkeepers as well as the medical shop owners said that they felt short of supply adding that in case the supply line on Kishtwar-Jammu National Highway could not be restored, there will be a shortage of essential commodities as well as the medicines in next few days.
The people in Consumer Affair and Public Distribution Department told the Early Times that there is shortage of flour in the stores and immediate steps are required to fill the gap.
Meanwhile, LPG supply resumed in the town after brief halt since the senior officials of CAPD department were found non-active on ground resulted into the confusion over the clearance of the vehicles involved in supply of the LPG. After the intervention of DC Kishtwar and senior police officials, the LPG supplying vehicles were cleared for home delivery of Gas cylinders in Kishtwar town and its peripheral areas.
Meanwhile, several volunteers continue to provide medical services to the people at their door steps on mobile calls.
