Jammu, June 1 JD(U) state president G.M. Shaheen said in a statement Jammu and Kashmir could see more deaths due to hunger than from the pandemic if it continues to remain in lockdown to halt the spread of Covid-19, according to Shaheen said. We must accept the coronavirus as the new normal, and facilitate the return-to-work of able-bodied while protecting the most vulnerable Shaheen said “What is important for us to understand is that we cannot continue in this situation for too long. Because at some point of time, People are employed either in the informal (unorganised) sector or are self-employed, and a significant part of this population is likely to have lost its livelihood due to the lockdown. More will lose their livelihoods “if this continues for long Shaheen said most businesses have lost 50% to 60% of their revenues, and this would have a bearing on the government’s tax and GST collections.
