Majority Roads Under Water, Snow, Power Woes Continue In Indian Occupied Kashmir




Majority roads remained flooded with water and snow in the summer c apital, Srinagar, and elsewhere in the Kashmir valley , where hundreds of houses and other structures besides some places of worship were damaged due to heavy snowfall.
Army headquarters and its cantonment areas including Indra Nagar remained flooded with water. Even though the administration claimed to have pressed into service entire state machinery to bring back the life on track, much more has to be done. Almost all inner roads and by-lanes remained under snow in the city, particularly in the uptown, including Budshah Chowk, Azad Basti, Natipora, Pamposh Colony, Dilsoz colony, Nowgam and Chanpora, where
no snow clearance operation has been launched even after two days of heavy snowfall.
People from different parts of the city alleged that no snow clearance operation was done on inner
roads connected with main roads.
However, snow clearance operation was conducted on main roads in the city, including civil lines,
where streets were water-lodged, making pedestrian and vehicular movement almost impossible.
Closure of Rambagh-Stadium crossing Airport road due to construction of flyover has added to traffic
woes in the uptown.
However, a good number of passenger vehicles were seen plying on city routes against very less
number during the past two days.
The Power Development Department (PDD) has restored more than 60 per cent power to consumers in
the city. However, people alleged that they are still facing frequent power failure after intervals.
Similar reports were received from other parts of the Kashmir valley, where some main roads also
remained blocked due to snow.
