Srinagar: Chief Minister, Mehbooba Mufti Friday reviewed the situation in Kashmir Valley arising out of the heavy snowfall of past 24 hours at a meeting of officers.
The Chief Minister directed continuous and overnight snow clearance of highways; inter-district roads and connecting arteries without any break. She specifically directed to keep the roads leading to hospitals and health centres open so that patients don’t suffer during these days.
Mehbooba Mufti sought complete synergy between various agencies on the ground dealing with snow clearance and other restoration works. She expressed her displeasure over the reports of massive traffic jams and skidding of vehicles in the city during the day even when the snow had not accumulated so much. She also directed early resumption of power supply besides ensuring uninterrupted drinking water and ration supply.
