Don’t make people jobless
11/25/2021 10:41:49 PM

Former Minister Choudhary Lal Singh recently drove home a very valid point i.e. if the government cannot provide employment then it should not at least snatch the existing jobs from the people.
He castigated the drives being launched by Jammu Municipal Corporation (JMC) and said that it has been resorting to atrocities against the common masses, who have been working hard to run their businesses.
After the outbreak of COVID-19 in early 2020, people have been struggling to make their ends meet as the pandemic has hit everyone hard. The authorities need to give a thought to what people have been facing. Dislodging small traders would further lead to the deterioration of the economy.
The government needs to focus on creating more employment avenues rather than dismantling the existing structure. Helmsmen need to understand that they cannot snatch the right to livelihood from the poor people. They have to ensure that people don’t starve. After J&K’s transition into a union territory many new laws have become applicable but much hasn’t been done to provide people with the facilities they should have got. Before displacing the street vendors and small-time shopkeepers the government should come up with a policy to rehabilitate them. They need to be provided with alternative means through which they can earn.
The helmsmen should understand that natives of Jammu too are the citizens of the country and they too have the similar rights and they cannot be ignored. The yellow line drive has adversely affected the business of shopkeepers in Jammu city areas. The planners need to think that the yellow line is mandatory only in those areas where traffic gets obstructed. Even if the authorities believe that this drive is important then only those areas should be marked where the traffic gets stuck. The areas free from traffic snarls should be spared.
It’s not only the small time traders who are suffering. The established businessmen too are facing many problems. After August 5, 2019—when the Centre announced its decision to abrogate J&K’s special status—many changes have occurred. The biggest change which the Jammu region has witnessed is that non-locals have bagged the big and small contracts as they have the capacity to invest huge amounts. This has led to many local businessmen being left in lurch. The gist is that helmsmen should not add to unemployment. Jobs are important and these cannot be snatched.
