Flash floods: Omar expresses grief over deaths

Srinagar: The National Conference vice president Omar Abdullah on Wednesday expressed grief over the loss of lives in the valley due to severe weather condition and urged the administration to make up to the losses suffered by people on a priority basis.
In a statement, he said the recent calamitous weather condition has led to both material and non-material losses to the people across Kashmir.
“It is the duty of the governor administration to provide succor to the families who stand affected by the vagaries of weather. There have been reports of massive losses to households, orchids, paddy lands across Kashmir including Beerwah. I urge the administration to come up with a contingency plan to mitigate the problems people across Kashmir are facing in the wake of incessant rains and hail storm. The administration should gear up its ground staff to ensure that all basic services including electricity are restored. I urge the administration to recompense the losses to people as soon as possible.”
Another NC leader Muhammad Akbar lone said, “The calamitous weather have caused immense losses to the people and two women also lost their lives. I take this opportunity to impress upon the governor administration to depute revenue teams to the affected wind storm affected areas of north Kashmir to access losses.”
Hasnain Masoodi also sought immediate attention of the administration to mitigate the problems that have arisen following wind storm and incessant rains in parts of Kulgam and Anantnag areas.
