4 April 2021

Srinagar: Former Chief Minister of erstwhile J&K state Omar Abdullah today urged the authorties to formulate a uniform strategy to deal with second wave of Covid. Many hours after administration decided to shut down schools for couple of weeks, Omar took to micro blogging site Twitter and wrote, ' Shutting schools up to class 9 in Kashmir for a couple of weeks is the right thing to do but the contrast with the hands-off approach to the crowds of visitors at the tulip garden is too stark to be ignored. A well considered uniform strategy is needed for the 2nd wave of COVID.' Speaking to KNS, Omar Abdullah clarified that he is not opposed to opening of the tulip garden, ' I only want Govt to ensure crowd management, social distancing & mask use,' he said 'COVID protocol has to be implemented.'
