Gurez residents seek opening of Bandipora-Gurez road

Bandipora: Residents of Dawar Tehsil in Gurez held a protest at Tehsil office Dawar, on Friday, demanding immediate opening of Bandipora-Gurez road.
The protestors included people from adjoining villages including Markoot, Wanpora, Mastan.
The protestors, led by Grand Imam of Jamia  Masjid, Dawar, said that they were facing hardships due to the closure of the road as the area was cut -off from rest of the valley since the road was closed in December last year.
The road remains closed for vehicular traffic for at least six months due to heavy snowfall on Razdan Top, one of the highest motorable passes in Jammu and Kashmir.
