APMCC appeals Lt Governor for relaxation for PM Package employees fearing Covid pandemic
“Employees are living in shared accommodation, cannot observe social distancing”

Jammu, September 16 (Scoop News)-All Parties Migrants Coordination Committee (APMCC) has appealed to the Lt Governor Manoj Sinha to announce relaxation in joining of duties to PM Package employees or arrange separate accommodation for them to protect them from Covid 19 Pandemic as social distancing cannot be maintained in shared accommodations.

In a statement issued to Press APMCC has sought relaxation for the PM Package Employees from rejoining their duties after September 21, particularly teachers saying most of the employees were either living in shared accommodation or living in rented accommodation where the landlords were apprehensive of infection and discouraging them to return.

Statement further said that in Mattan camp four to six families were sharing single kitchen and employees’ families were living with them thus creating a complete chaotic situation in these tough times adding either they should be allotted separate accommodation or relaxation given to them for rejoining their duties to prevent spread of Pandemic among the KP migrants.

King C Bharati, senior Journalist and National Spokesperson APMCC in a statement said that it was the duty of the government to protect the migrant employees first as the state was passing through a tough situation where Covid positive cases were increasing and more deaths taking place due to fast spreading Covid Pandemic.
He said that since it was not possible for the government to arrange the accommodation for more than three thousand employees in short span of time it was advisable to give them exemption from rejoining their duties at this moment.
