Honours people for their work during the lockdown

 JALANDHAR/NAKODAR: Thanks to the hard work done by Captain Amarinder Singh-led Punjab Government, police, administration, health workers and civil society, the COVID-19 situation is under control, but the pandemic is not over yet and people should continue to strictly follow safety guidelines as they move around in public now, said Member of Parliament Santokh Singh Chaudhary after honouring people for their work during the lockdown here on Monday.

 

During a visit to village Shampur in Nakodar assembly constituency, the senior Congress leader applauded the work done by local police and administration and felicitated SHO Bilga Surjeet Singh, SHO Nurmahal Hardeep Singh, Municipal Council Bilga President Paramjeet Pamma, naib tehsildars, patwari and others in a function organized by Guru Ravidas Sabha and Gobind Ram.

 

Speaking on this occasion, MP Chaudhary said that the impact of coronavirus pandemic has been so unprecedented that even superpowers of the world have found it difficult to bear, but in Punjab, due to early steps taken by the government and strict compliance with safety guidelines, the number of cases have remained low, adding that the situation in Jalandhar also was in control.

 

 

Chaudhary Santokh Singh expressed gratitude to police and civil administration, doctors, nurses, municipal councils, panchayats, NGOs, volunteers and Congress party workers for working day and night to fight the pandemic and look after people adversely affected by it. He warned that the situation was still fragile, and all precautions must be taken when moving around in public.

 

On this occasion, he also hit out at the Central Government for not paying heed to warnings by the Opposition and turning a blind eye to the miseries of poor migrants. “The Central government has followed the model of centralization of the credit and federalization of the blame. After mismanaging everything and creating a mess, they are now leaving it to the states to sort it out,” he said.
