Same problem, same result! The men at fault especially during the covid-19 times are under the radar of the police!
District Police Poonch is keeping a tight leash on the violators of covid-19 rules and regulations because these mad hatters moving about if not checked now will surely make it to the vacant beds in district hospital Poonch. It is nothing but irresponsibility on the part of the citizenry which is unpardonable.
The checks will be on till the time the people realize the gravity of the situation!
There is something called the height of stupidity and I will say that it is a grand exhibition of the same being put across by the people who are moving about without covid-19 protocols as if the contagion is their greatest buddy.
A question that sometimes drives me hazy: am I or are the others crazy? This is the third story on the same subject of people especially so the younger lot not listening and violating the instructions at will laid down by the District Magistrate Poonch.
They should know that there was no one checking them as things had subsided after the first wave was over. It is only when the virus took to second insertion that the police are reacting and it is for the people.
If they want to survive the pandemic they have to be within the restrictions till they are fully relaxed. At the moment they have not been.
No one is interested in keeping the people indoors and in any case why should anyone be? But this is a medical insurgency in which an unpredictable, invisible and a ruthless enemy is moving and hunting for its next prey.
Agreed that the second wave is going down but so did the first one. If someone thinks that the viruses can be defeated, I’m sorry that he/she is ignorant and grossly off the grid. They burn out themselves, get weak and lose their infectious powers and thus go away. But they can come back and this one too is predicted to gate crash the third time and that is the reason the restrictions have been imposed.
If they have been then we are all duty bound to follow them because they have all been constituted for us and that too for our safety about which we ourselves are not bothered but the police are duty bound!
The onlookers who see the people being checked by the Police look and laugh and do mention, don’t worry he is crazy because he has that kind of intoxicating insanity that makes others look stupid. If others are wearing masks, in fact two of them then he is no special. Not only will he create problems for himself but for others too!
It is rather unbelievable that even the respected people are committing this folly along with some incredibly stupid ones. They should realize that these are not pre-covid-19 days when anyone could do anything and get away with it. These are bad times and everyone is saying so in no uncertain terms. If someone has his/her eardrums ruptured or not wanting to listen then they will meted out indecency and in this case he cannot blame anyone else.
It further convinces me or rather it would do to anyone that the most difficult door to open is the entrance to an ignorant mind. These people whom the police are checking do not know what consequences they might face if the bug decides to take them as a host and gets into the body cells. Any way someone said it right, wisdom is the distance between intelligence and stupidity. What these people are doing is the latter.
Obviously they left the Police top brass with no option but to get after them with IG Mukesh Singh’s instructions being on the dot that spare no one who was at fault and make him realize via the mode of a scorpion sting in form of fines. Losing money worthlessly does hurt. Thus DIG Rajouri Poonch Range Vivek Gupta dittoed the orders and then it was left to SSP Poonch Dr. Vinod Kumar and his team of officers and men got into action and went hammer and tongs after the rule breakers. Thirty days are enough for even the biggest of blank heads to come to terms with the situation prevailing. Needless to mention it is ridiculously bad even though the pathogen has smothered its momentum of infections.
The why the people of District Poonch have behaved in this way for the last one month forces one towards thinking that the human species is terrifically talented and sophisticatedly stupid. Incidentally many in Poonch say that they are mightily talented, nothing wrong in that but then go and show that you really are. This is no way to do so. The only thing worse than stupidity is the willingness to display it and that is what they are doing and were doing in the month that has gone by. Here is what the District Police did during covid-19 control measures during the past one month:
They went on to register 173 first information reports (FIR’s) thus proving that sometimes people really don’t have their best interests in mind and thus indulge in ridiculous activities.
Vehicles seized amounted to 35. Well what should I say here, If you want to dig a grave faster than anyone, use ignorance as a tool.
Face masks are so mandatory under present circumstances but people do not like to wear them. 4598 was the number of people ticked off for not wearing them. Come on friends, your girlfriends are not going to reject you if you wear one. But if you get infected without wearing one then be ready for a heart break.
For not following social distancing rules 70 individuals were booked. It’s the easiest of tasks and if you still do not perform it tantamounts to breaking the laid rules.
Spitting on the road is as such a bad habit and in these times the worst. Thus the booking of 66 people was right in order.
Having liquor and yapping about is as such not permissible and in pandemic times it is a sin along with chewing tobacco. They do not help you in any way but they definitely assist you big time to become vulnerable to coronavirus. 30 people were on the finish line breasting the tape as if they had won a race.
And finally the loss to the pocket of the people was Rs.9,68900/- Indeed the people in district Poonch are rich. What should I say here as an extra comment, I will prefer to say, where there is ignorance there is sorrow and where there is stupidity there is pain. Loss of money causes pain so the lesson learnt is never violate orders!
In conclusion I will only say that people should know as to what is stupidity in these times? First it is over estimating self, second is deliberately committing a mistake and the third is knowingly letting yourself creep to the danger zone! District police Poonch is trying everything to stop you doing so, so please assist them rather than creating chicanery!
