CAIT suggests Union Health Minister to plan district-wise strategies to contain COVID New Delhi, Apr 15 (KNN) In pursuance of Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s call for creation of small containment zones to fight COVID pandemic, the Confederation of All India Traders (CAIT) has suggested to Union Health Minister Dr Harshvardhan to draw a COVID fighting strategy plan based on District wise fundamental principles.
There are 718 districts in the Country and each district has its own distinction and diversified nature. Therefore having one cannon to rule all districts may not be able to check the spread of Corona.
CAIT National President B C Bhartia & Secretary General Praveen Khandelwal said that the manner in which the COVID cases are exponentially rising is a cause of concern for not only the Government but for the countrymen as well.
Though both Central and State Governments are taking every step but now it is required that this pandemic should be fought with a collaborative approach and making a strategy on District level seems to be most appropriate. Each district has its own physical geographic nature and therefore this kind of strategy will prove to be more effective and at each district a special task force should be created with senior government officials and representatives of trade and commerce and residential associations, CAIT said in a statement on Wednesday.
Both Bhartia & Khandelwal while taking a note of SOP of Maharashtra criticised that on the one hand the shops have been asked to close whereas on the other hand roadside vendors are allowed to sell the goods.
Why such an inconsistency in SOP? The traders body questioned and said, If curfew is clamped then it should be for everyone and any distinction in curfew leads to disparity. COVID can’t be tackled in selective manner.
Considering the alarming situation of COVID, the CAIT has initiated an online survey across the country among traders and consumers to understand the view of the public whether complete lockdown is the only solution of dealing with pandemic or there are some other alternative mechanisms available.
