NC for immediate restoration of road connectivity, power, water supply

Srinagar: The Jammu and Kashmir National Conference has asked the administration to augment its response to the issues faced by people in wake of heavy snowfall across Kashmir decrying its preemptive approach to avoid predicaments suffered by people in wake of weather vagaries.
Party president Farooq Abdullah has urged the administration to ensure snow clearance on major routes especially those leading to health facilities, power and water supply, stock and adequate distribution of essential commodities including medicines, LPG, Kerosene and other edibles.
“Prices of air tickets to and from Srinagar have skyrocketed as has been the trend every winter season,” Dr Farooq said adding that uncapped and unregulated air travel prices in our sector has been a long pending issue which authorities need to address immediately.
Meanwhile in a joint statement party’s senior leaders Mubarak Gul, Shameema Firdous, Irfan Shah, Ali Mohammad Dar, Dr Bashir Veeri said the recent snowfall warrants immediate and effective administrative response across Kashmir. “Administration should ensure road connectivity across Kashmir including Shahar- e-Khas areas of Srinagar, including city suburbs. The inter district commute remains affected by the heavy snowfall in wake of the administration’s failure to live up to its obligations. In wake of the closure of main arterials, people living in rural and far-flung areas are finding it difficult to get their patients to hospitals,” they said.
