United Fight to Contain Corona Virus Needed: CPI
The National Secretariat of the Communist Party of India issued the following statement on March 19, 2020:
The National Secretariat of the Communist Party of India appeals to all sections of the people to come together to fight the Corona virus pandemic. While appreciating the steps taken by the Union and State governments and administrations to contain the spread of virus in the country, the Party appeals to all states to coordinate their efforts so that loss is brought down to the minimum.
Similarly, many educational institutes are closed and students are asked to vacate the hostels. Many students are having problems to vacate the hostels on a short notice which must be addressed by the administration.
In this crisis situation daily wage and bread earners like workers, vendors, auto rickshaw, taxi driver, etc, are worst affected and hence the government must give them some relief through economic incentive and by providing rations, etc.
The Party also urges upon concerned authorities to provide masks and sanitisers to the poor people free of cost.
The Party appeals to all sections of the society to co-operate with the administration over the preventive measures undertaken and abide by the instructions of WHO to prevent the spread of the pandemic.
