Great Decisions Topic
India
and
Pakistan
India’s National election in 2019, which resulted in Prime Minister Modi’s BJP Party capturing 303 seats of the Parliament’s 542, upended India’s secular democratic traditions and global reputation as the world’s most populous democracy and further destabilized its precarious relationship with neighboring Pakistan. Since the election PM Modi has swiftly adopted BJP’s hardline, right wing political agenda of Hindu nationalism. Most prominently was the BJP’s move within two months of the election playing its ideological hand in a stunning strike against Muslim-majority Kashmir by stripping them of their limited political autonomy and placing them under military rule.

The phone line is designed to provide information about the new coronavirus and COVID-19 to medical providers, members of the media, people who may be experiencing virus symptoms and members of the public who have questions, Public Health Director Gibbie Harris told the Board of County Commissioners Wednesday night.

The hotline phone number is (980) 314-9400. Harris said it will be open daily from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. for general inquiries and 24 hours a day for the medical community.

We have quite a few name tags...If we are holding yours please come get it. Your name tag lets us know who you are, and as some of us have "senior moments" it is much easier to converse if we know your name. Please always wear your name tag. If the magnet is a problem for you we have a remedy.
