RCCI urges for uniform lockdown policy across all cities


RAWALPINDI, MAR 15 (DNA) – The Rawalpindi Chamber of Commerce and Industry (RCCI) urges to adopt a uniform lock-down policy across the country to deal with Corona.

Acting President RCCI Shahraiz A Malik has said in a statement that a uniform smart lockdown policy should be formulated in collaboration with stakeholders.

Rawalpindi and Islamabad are twin cities. Under Smart Lockdown, shop closing hours should be kept the same.

He said that only by adopting a uniform policy the fourth wave of COVID-19 can be dealt with effectively. The Rawalpindi Chamber stands with the business community, he added.

The number of cases can be reduced only by strictly implementation of standard operating procedures (SOPs).

The electronic and digital media being an effective medium, can play a vital role here in spreading awareness messages to the youth, children and the elderly, he added.

“We have to prove that we are responsible citizens, and this responsibility lies to everyone,” he said.=DNA
