Govt employees confused over Admin’s fresh lockdown guidelines
Workers say lockdown and leave cancellation en-masse turns situation puzzling
7/16/2020 12:15:19 AM

JAMMU, July 15: The Srinagar administration while imposing a fresh lockdown in the Summer capital has ironically cancelled the leaves of all the government employees, giving wider rise to doubts and confusion amid the present crises.
There are thousands of government employees who complain that police are not allowing them to report to their duties and that they are forced to go home. However, they complain that the government in its recent lockdown instructions hasn’t made this thing clear whether the government employees living in the red zones are required to report to their duties or not. “There are a huge number of barricades erected by the government around my area. I wonder how I will reach my office as the government has cancelled the leaves of all its employees working in the district,” said an employee working in the Rural Development Department in Srinagar.
Scores of other employees also have raised the issue of facing immense difficulties while reaching their respective places of postings. “It is ironic that there is no clarity over whether those who are in the red zones and whose areas have been sealed by the authorities should go to the offices or stay home. On the other hand, to make things worse, the government has cancelled the leaves of all the employees. It means they have to anyhow reach the offices. What does it mean?,” says another government worker.
The government recently after recording a serious surge in the COVID 19 positive cases decided to enforce lockdown in Srinagar including the busiest market of the summer capital known as Lal Chowk.
Pertinent to mention that seven more patients who were tested positive for Covid-19 have died in Kashmir valley, taking the toll of deaths related to Covid-19 in J&K to 202 on Thursday.
Officials said that 6 patients died at SKIMS Soura while one died at GMC Anantnag. 70 year old male from Illahi bagh Srinagar who was admitted on 05 July died in infectious disease block at 12 midnight. Furthermore , a 77 year old male patient from New colony Pulwama who was admitted on 11 July died at 12:30 am. Also a 52 year old male from Lal Bazar Srinagar who was admitted on 13 July died at 2:00 am. As per the government 85 year old male from Ladoora Baramulla who was shifted from GMC Baramulla to SKIMS for ventilatory support died at SKIMS at 6:30 am. Also, a 60 year old male from Hathlango Sopore who was admitted on 05 July died at 7 am. Government in its report on July 15 has stated further that a 65 year old male from Khrewan village of Southern Kashmir who was admitted on 04 July died last night. With 7 more deaths, the death toll in J&K has reached 202 including 184 from Kashmir division and 18 from Jammu division.
