Film Industry wants Himachal to be open for Shooting : Jai Ram Thakur

10,000 skilled workers registered in a Portal for employment in HP

Shimla : The Chief Minister of HP Jai Ram Thakur said that though the Tourism Industry, particularly the Hotel sector has been hit very heavily due to Corona in Himachal, many sectors are still willing to work here as soon as they are allowed to do so . While addressing a press video conference for Dharamshala based media from Shimla today, CM said, “Film industry is requesting us to open the state for shooting purposes and they agree to abide by all the corona norms fixed by the centre and state governments while doing so. We are looking at it.” He said that Himachal is one of the favourite tourist destinations of the world and after the outbreak of Corona and its lockdown stages, the tourism industry has collapsed. He added that around 55000 workers of this industry have been affected directly. Hotels are virtually locked since March 20. “We have given six months relations of water and power charges to this industry, but this is not enough. The loss is so huge that nobody could repair it, we have to bear it collectively,” said Thakur. He said that so far Himachal has been less affected with Corona and till date only 475 cases registered with just 6 deaths . And as the recovery rate is very high , many tourism concerned units are eagerly waiting for its opening in Himachal.
He said that after the corona outbreak in march ,Himachal registered around 40 positive cases, with our hard work and cooperation of all sectors many patients cured and we reduced the tally to just 1 positive case in the first week of May, but as we brought back around 2 lakh Himachalis stranded in different parts of India due to lockdown there was a sudden increase in positive cases in the state . “But those who came to HP from other states are under strict surveillance, and as a lot of them are being cured, the situation is not alarming,” said CM.CM said that a couple of scams were reported during the corona period in the state, the culprits have been arrested and the investigations are on. He said, “Himachal is one of the few states which have spent very less on purchases during the corona period to meet the defence equipment for medical staff and others. We have made purchases of around 13 crore rupees so far. And though we have finalized and passed tenders for many purchases, we have not utilised them, as we are getting the material free of cost from the central government.”CM added that many Himachalis who were working in the industries , offices or other private sectors in many states of India have returned back to Himachal in the past three months . He said, “To help them to provide jobs in the state , the government has started one portal and attached it to different industries ,so that they can be absorbed directly according to their skill and experience. 10,000 persons have registered so far in it.”Earlier today, while speaking in a virtual rally of Dharamshala assembly BJP workers Jai Ram Thakur said, “ We should be proud of our PM Narender Modi ji, under whose leadership we are going ahead even in this pandemic. The way Indian public supported Him from Janta curfew to Lockdown IV ,is the greatness of his leadership.” He said that the top fifteen most affected European and American countries have a population of around 142 crores while their death toll is around 4 Lakhs, whereas India has 135 crores of population and our death toll is just 8000, because Indians are fighting it with great zeal under the dynamic leadership.
