Udupi: Lockdown effect - More than 6,000 hotel employees in dire straits


Daijiworld Media Network – Udupi (MS)

Udupi, May 5: Hotel industry, which is one of the prominent sector, which provides employment to scores of people, is hit hard due to the lockdown announced because of increasing cases of Covid in the second lockdown.

People who are not fortunate to get higher education and even those with minor physical disabilities get employment in the hotel industry. They get free food and lodging in the hotel itself. Cleaning personnel get around Rs 400 to Rs 500 per day. Most of the cleaning personnel are women in hotels. People from outstation districts are employed in hotels. Only those hotels, which supply parcel service have kept limited number of personnel for work and rest are asked to go home or their native places.

There are around 2,500 hotels in the district, including multi-cuisine family restaurants, small canteens, mobile canteens, hotels serving fish meals and fast food centers. Only parcel service is allowed during the Janata Curfew. Only 30% of the hotels are giving parcel service. Rest of the hotels have downed their shutters as they are unable to maintain the cost of overheads due to only parcel service.

Some of the hotel owners are providing half salary to the employees and also some money for household expenses. But the employees are also saying that from where will the hotel owners pay them if they do not have business.

    Namaste Trump started all these problems in February 2020. Trump is to blame. After all the indulgence, he still blamed India and chided the PM. Trump must be laughing now at the troubles Indians are suffering from.

    Online business worldwide making billions using this pandemic. Small and medium businesses on the verge of collapsing. This is what this communist virus all about and 'Their Gold Standard RTPCR Tests'. These high sensitive RTPCR Tests which may detect normal seasonal corona viruses 2021 and other flus also as Covid 19. These tests basically for Stats or Numbers required the Hype Fear and for or to push Vaccines. This is well planned by communist and global elites to rake billions in vaccine, computer, technology and online business, same time with various strenght viruses and vaccines after vaccines, booster after booster for mutants to corrupt human immune system to depopulate and control the world to bring their new world order. How many mutants are only due to their different vaccines is the main question? That also may be preplanned as one of western elite predicted this type of virus back in 2015.

    On 20th November, RaGa had clearly & repeatedly warned the top administration of an impending tsunami, which would create havoc in our country if we do not start getting defensive & be ready for the worst; but our super heroes went into self appreciation mode & mocked RaGa! The administration was so euphoric & became complacent that they organized a massive rally for, his friend, Trump spending a huge amount; at which point, the second wave was erupting across the world; apply logic & think how much this gathering would have helped in spread of the virus? Now our friend, Trump, is biting the dust! After that what all incidents happened, please do your own research & decide! Now, innocent people are falling down like flies; black marketers are minting money in every situation till the crematorium; nothing more! Only our respective Gods can save us now!

    If Shaheen Bagh protestors are to be blamed, a much responsible PM of the country was doing 'Namaste Trump'. He is the first person who should be blamed for spreading the virus. We don't need certificate from you fake nationalists to show our devotion towards our nation. Hum bigde hi kab the ki sudhrenge.

    Vicky, Which pilgrimage happened in Saudi. Just don't blabber nonsense. The Haj did not take place last year. Moreover there was no devastation in any of the gulf countries. The highest number of cases in the gulf was from KSA which was around 5000. Between 70 lakh to 1 Crore people visited Kumbh Mela...so all of them were from Hilly terrain? I did not know you too are dehati. Blame it on the BJP government who turned a blind eye when the Kumbh Mela was occurring and the current CM Harish Rawat claiming that Corona will be washed away from the blessings of Ganga Mayya? Kahan hai Ganga Mayya? Why don't you stop the deaths happening through Ganga water?

    Sameer Riyadh...Whereever abode of Lord Shiva..there is holy water so called Ganga or Zam-zam. We are giving same importance to both and carrying to home in belief as pure holy. Islam and Sanatana Dharam both following Lunar Calendar. We are observing moon from many decades and know very well about Poornima and Amavas. You people also observe moon sightseeing after amvas only for fasting. During amavas moon will be not visible in any continent by mistake also. Still your idiot people looking upwards towards sky..by any chance moon might appear.

    Vicky, By your own comments Corona Lately hit Indian shores because Europe was the first one to get the beating. Thus when Rahul Gandhi advised the Indian government to take necessary steps to ramp up testing, the Indian government mocked him. Thus it's failure of the BJP government at the centre which had no clue and they are clueless till date. Anguta Chaap jo tehre..Dehati..

Why you people did left congress this time..and not given chance to win in five states..??. Congress only looted the nation and made people poor year by year. No strong foundation laid inspite of so many funds avlble along with other natural resources.

    Newly ventured hotel owners in partnership or in big loss. Some are invested money by taking loan..without business had incurred much loss. A small eatery hotels can earn somewhat due to day to day local customers. More loss will be happen in god's hundi...where in pouring of money will be limited.

    Covid 19 is a zoonotic infection ( it came from animals to humans). It can also pass from humans to animals.Recently some lions at Hyderabad zoo tested positive. 1.In a lockdown there is more rush at the markets 2.There is no curfew for animals ,they can still transfer the virus back to humans.3 Even if one single infected person comes from a non-lockdown area, everything starts all over again.4 The loss to economy cannot be compensated.5 The huge middle class is pushed into poverty.5 Unlike other countries we do not get a paycheque of $ 1500 per month for sitting at home.
