“Many salon employees have started to work at homes,” said Hadiqa, adding that it was very devastating for salon industry as well as for the purpose of imposing lockdown to contain Coronavirus in the country. She said that these girls might be carrying the virus to houses they were going to work at. “The appeal is that the government should enforce this lockdown in letter and spirit,” she said. She also said that the situation was getting worse and suggested that the government should make a policy for this business industry.

“If this lockdown is going long then the government should give any policy and SOPs for this Saloon industry,” said the singer. Hadiqa said, “Or these girls who are working at others’ homes should be given some stipends so that they could survive in this crisis,”.
