“Today our people are out on the streets to protest for their basic requirements of ration, and this doesn’t auger well for peace and stability in the state. Developmental projects in the state have been put on the backburner and people are suffering,” Abdullah said.

He said the said the state government should treat this matter with “utmost seriousness”.
He said NEET would deprive the girls of fifty per cent reservation in the state’s medical colleges.
