Shyam Sudan As we know the entire world is suffering from the deadly attack of COVID 19 viral infection. All the nations of the world are in great crisis and working to eliminate this unexpected man made devastation. World economy is struggling for its existence, revival and rejuvenation. However the efforts of different corona warriors and different health organisations are very praiseworthy and exemplary in this crucial juncture of pandemic. Lot of health workers and other deputed officials are playing crucial role with utmost sincerity and professional spirit. They are working and fighting with this global problem with their missionary zeal and enthusiasm. No doubt the role of these corona warriors is very committed and extraordinary. Lot of corona warriours like doctors, paramedical staff, security personnel, teachers, mid day meal cooks and other officials of essential services are continuously rendering duties day and night against this epidemic. But these employees are facing lot of hardships and problems in their respective fields which need to be addressed on priority basis. Various protocols and guidelines have been issued by the government to check and control the menace of this viral infection. Social distancing is the prerequisite precautionary measure in this direction. No doubt people are cooperating with the administration in this direction with their postive approach. But the official engaged for covid duties are also confronted with a new behaviour of public at this crucial time. Now people have started a new campaign of social boycotting of covid duty employees. At many places lot of cases have been reported where the behaviour of general public towards these employees is very bizzare and unfriendly. People generally look towards these employees with suspicion. Even in some places these covid deployed employees are facing the problem of derogatory comments from general public. Now these covid deployed employees are treated as untouchables in society. This kind of social boycotting by the public generally demoralize these corona warriors. As we know in order to check the spread of this viral infection various quarantine centeres and Covid check posts have been established at different corners of the country. In these centers lot of such employees including teachers, health workers, mid day meal cooks are giving their services round the clock. But these employees who are performing their duties in such places of risk and danger are facing lot of problems. There is no provision of personal protection kits (PPE) and other protective dresses for these employees. These employees are in regular contact with many covid positive persons in these centers. Also employees who are performing their duties in such centers are not getting various kinds of incentives and other monetary benefits. As we know due to this pandemic situation government has decided to curtail various kinds of allowances from the salaries of the government employees. But side wise a promise has been made by the government that there is no curtailment in various allowances from the salaries of those employees who are performing their duties in such covid centres and other covid deputed works. Mainly the benefits of their travelling allowances (TA) can be given to such employees in their salary. But at many places at zonal level these employees are not getting the proper benefits of such kind of allowances. Mostly teachers deputed at different covid duties at different zones of Jammu and Kashmir are still aloof from these kind of benefits from the DDOs concerned. When these covid duty teachers approached their DDOs they demand the order and circular copy of such kind of announcement. For a teacher, who is engaged in this missionary work it is very difficult to provide such kind of official circular by visiting different administration level offices. Similary these teachers are engaged in such duties during their summer vacation period. But there is no proposal for providing earned leave benefits for this vacation period duty. Also mid day meal cooks who are engaged in such quarantine centers for preparing meals for quarantine people are devoid of any kind of monetary benefits. These mid day meal cooks are generally engaged in different government schools for preparing meals for school children. But at this crucial time these are deputed for the aforesaid work. Mostly these mid day meal cooks are engaged in their agricultural works at this time of the year. Because it is the time for maize tilling in the rural areas.
