Stay at home, maintain social distance, AIUDF urges people

By Staff Reporter

GUWAHATI, March 31 - AIUDF chief and Lok Sabha member Badruddin Ajmal has urged the State�s people not to violate lockdown rules, saying all should stay at home and maintain social distance. He also appealed to the Central and State governments to make sure that daily wage earners, small traders and other economically vulnerable segments do not suffer during the lockdown.

He said some incidents of police being attacked by people while trying to enforce the lockdown and prevent large gatherings at public places have been reported, including at Chapar in Dhubri. �Such incidents are totally condemnable. All citizens should follow the directives issued by the government in this time of pandemic. All citizens should unite against coronavirus,� said Ajmal. He demanded punishment to the culprits behind the attacks.

Ajmal pointed out that daily wage earners, small traders and self-employed people are facing immense hardships as they have lost their sources of income on account of the lockdown. �We urge all those who can help such people to do so. The government must also ensure that such economically vulnerable segments are taken care of and no poor should face starvation,� he said.

Ajmal said all segments of society must jointly fight to prevent the spread of the Covid-19 pandemic. �We urge everybody to adhere to the rules of the lockdown and to maintain social distancing. The question of caste, creed and religion does not arise in this time of pandemic. All must strive to stay safe and also urge others to do the same. Last Friday, 95 per cent of Muslims in India and Assam followed the government�s lockdown rules and prayed at their respective homes instead of congregating in the mosques. We hope they will follow this practice next Friday as well,� he said.

Ajmal also said he is contributing Rs 1.5 crore from his Members� of Parliament Local Area Development Scheme fund for the government�s fight against Covid-19.
