Employees of tourism sector demands financial assistance

Published

on

The second wave of coronavirus has made all of us remain inside the home. Amid the corona curfew the shops have been closed, streets are deserted and no physical activity can be seen on the ground. Although the corona curfew was a necessary step to curb the cases, it has made the daily wagers struggle for one meal a day.

Today the JK Channel Executive met photographers who are associated with the tourism sector. One can find these people at any famous picnic spots. Since the picnic spots are closed, these people are struggling to meet the daily needs of their families.

While speaking a photographer said “amid the rising deaths in the UT we can’t step out for our work and since last year we are struggling to meet the daily needs of our family. The Administration hasn’t provided us with any type of assistance.”

The President of the Bagh-e-Bahu Photographer Association said “it’s very unfortunate the government doesn’t show any concern towards us. On one hand, the government is claiming that they’re promoting the tourism sector on the other hand they’re ignoring us. We’re registered photographers and we’re paying proper fees but still, they are not supporting us.”
