Heavy unemployed due to closure of hotels in HP: Sudhir Sharma
Says state government should issue special package for hotel industry
Dharamshala: All India Congress Committee (AICC) Secretary and former Minister Sudhir Sharma said that the state government is constantly becoming a laughing stock by making wrong decisions. He said that the government has decided to open the boundaries of the state to tourists; while on the other hand, the hotel industry of the state has decided not to open the hotels due to increasing cases of corona infection. He said, “This decision of the hotel industry is a welcome step and the government also needs to learn a lesson from it that whenever a decision related to a class is taken, the people of that class should also be taken into confidence.” He said that the people associated with the hotel industry have taken this decision in the interest of the state by keeping their livelihood at bay.
Sudhir Sharma said, “The hotel industry in the state has been highly affected due to the global epidemic corona and a large number of people of this industry have become unemployed. In such a situation, the government should issue a special package for the hotel industry so that the hotel industry can get back on track. He said that the government opened the boundaries of the state to outsiders and a large number of people reached the tourist places here, which has increased the risk of infection. In such a situation, the government should rethink its decision.”
Sudhir Sharma said that in the same way the government has allowed transport bus service to run with 100 percent seats occupancy and also said that social distancing must be maintained. He has taunted how social distancing will be followed when passengers occupy 100 percent seats. He advised the government that such steps should not be taken without considering the interests of Himachalis on the priority.
