Early Times Report

JAMMU, Mar 30: Describing all those frontline workers engaged in combating Covid-19 as real heroes of the nation, National Conference Provincial President Mr Devender Singh Rana today saluted police and security force personnel, doctors, para-medics and lab technicians, media persons, employees manning essential utility services, people maintaining supply line of essentials and numerous others behind the screen but functional on ground zero all the time, for their gigantic service to humanity at the alter of their own lives as also their families. "We vehemently acknowledge their valour and fortitude, which is going to make all the difference in steering out the mankind out of these uncertain times", Mr Rana said in a statement here this afternoon.
Rana exhorted the people to pull together and rise above politics to support the efforts of the government in minimising human tragedy caused due to alarming spread of corona virus.
"This is not the time for politicking but to extend helping hand in every effort being made by the government through its frontline agencies in meeting the challenge", the Provincial President said while appreciating the tireless services of a huge number of people in hospitals, on roads and in manning the various other essential services.
"Due to their inspirational service and our time tested resilience, we are confident to steer out of these uncertain times", Mr Rana hoped while urging the people not to panic but stay homes for their safety by strictly adhering to the advisories issued from time to time to defeat the virus. He said an onerous responsibility has cast upon all of us to pull together to tackle the outbreak as a national duty. This can be achieved by strictly observing the mandatory protocol, he said, hoping these measures will turn out as real game changer.
Referring to the difficulties being faced by different segments of people in the wake of lock down, the Provincial President said we must help them out at this crucial juncture as per the very best of our values and human nature. He said all religions preach compassion and this is the time we can demonstrate this by sharing each others' joys and miseries.
"Despit being confined to our homes, as a precaution, we can do pretty well by supporting those in need, just in our backyards and the surroundings, by our humble ways", Mr Rana said, adding that even a paltry little contribution can be a huge succour for the hapless brethren, who have been rendered jobless due to lock-down.
"They need us as we have needed them in best of our times", he said, hoping the society will rise to the occasion and demonstrate the bonds of togetherness as per India's rich heritage.
He prayed for wellbeing of all and wished people to stay safe in their homes.
