Srinagar, March 24 Jammu Kashmir Apni Party (JKAP) president Altaf Bukhari on Tuesday welcomed the release of former Chief Minister Omar Abdullah, and demanded that all other political detainees, including former Chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti be also released at an earliest in view of COVID-19 outbreak.

In a statement issued here, Bukhari termed the revocation of the PSA against Omar Abdullah a significant move that will help in making the situation more conducive in Jammu and Kashmir. He demanded that hundreds of other political activists currently detained in and outside Jammu and Kashmir jails be freed especially in view of the coronavirus pandemic.

“It has been our consistent demand that all the political activists and leaders, including former chief ministers be released to ease up the sufferings of people. Their release has assumed more significance in light of the COVID-19 outbreak that has paralyzed the whole world,” Bukhari observed.

He said that hundreds of political activists who are presently detained in outside Jammu and Kashmir jails like Ambedkar Nagar, Lukhnow, Allahabad, Agra, Rai Bareli, Agartala and Tihar need to be shifted back to their native places immediately so as to ensure their safety from the pandemic.

“On the one side the central government is taking all measures to stem spread of the COVID-19 and on the other hand it seems the plight of political detainees and their families is being ignored for obvious reasons,” Bukhari remarked.

He said that there are families who are not in a position to meet their loved ones detained after August 5, 2019. “The government imposed restrictions on interstate travel and the spread of COVID-19 has further added to the woes of families of the political detainees. The government must immediately release all the political detainees and till those formalities are completed their lodgement should be shifted to J&K without any further delay,” he advocated.

Bukhari said the COVID-19 crisis has adversely affected the basic human rights of political detainees who are held without charge or trial but on a mere suspicion. “The families of such detainees are undergoing mental trauma as they are not able to visit their near and dear ones regularly. The Central govrnnment must order their release on compassionate and humanitarian grounds,” he observed.

“PM Needs To Understand…”: Rahul Gandhi On Recession

The centre is expecting the recent easing of farm and labour laws, along with tax incentives, to bolster manufacturing and lure more foreign investment.

Rahul Gandhi

New Delhi: Congress MP Rahul Gandhi today took a swipe at the government over reports that the economy has gone into a recession and crores have been left unemployed. He pointed to the basic job scheme MGNREGA, which was launched by the Congress-led United Progressive Alliance government, as having made to remain idle with “three crore people still looking for work”.

“Under PM Modi, India’s economy is officially in a recession for the first time ever. More importantly, 3 crore people are still looking for work under MNREGA. Economy cannot be ordered to grow by diktats. PM needs to first understand this basic idea,” Mr Gandhi tweeted, in what was seen as an allusion to PM Modi’s often overnight announcements that result in sweeping policy changes immediately.

Under PM Modi, India’s economy is officially in a recession for the first time ever.

Economy cannot be ordered to grow by diktats. PM needs to first understand this basic idea.

— Rahul Gandhi (@RahulGandhi) November 27, 2020
From sudden demonetisation in November 2016 to the announcement of the lockdown in late March necessitated by the coronavirus pandemic, which led to hardships, opposition leaders have been attacking PM Modi over decisions that they say were taken without considering their impact on a vast number of the population.

The country’s gross domestic product (GDP) also shrank for the second straight quarter through September, although it showed signs of a pick-up after the easing of pandemic restrictions that triggered a record contraction in the previous quarter.

The GDP in July-September quarter contracted 7.5 per cent on year, data released by the National Statistical Office today showed, compared to a decline of 23.9 per cent in the previous three months.

Annual growth of 3.4 per cent in farm sector and 0.6 per cent in manufacturing during September quarter raised hopes of an early recovery as the government gears up to distribute COVID-19 vaccine whenever it becomes available.

The centre is expecting the recent easing of farm and labour laws, along with tax incentives, to bolster manufacturing and lure more foreign investment.

India is not alone in suffering from economic troubles because of the pandemic. Several other nations have seen their economy shrink as manufacturing slows down.
