Srinagar : The Jammu and Kashmir National Conference has asked the administration to remain wide- awake following the meteorological department’s forecast for snowfall in coming days.

Party General Secretary Ali Muhammad Sagar in a statement released from the party head quarters Nawa- e-Subhe-Subh, asked the divisional administration to ensure people do not suffer due to blockade of roads post snow accumulation.

“Last winter the administration was caught napping following heavy snowfall. I hope the concerned departments have learnt lessons from the previous year. This winter season, it is expected that the clearing departments/agencies viz Roads and Buildings, PMGSY, MED, BRO, NHA, NHIDCL will keep their men and machinery ready to face emergencies,” he added.

He said that the concerned agencies invested with duty of Sanitation in Srinagar city, towns and district headquarters across Kashmir, and Chenab regions, should also explore the possibility of employing manual laborers to undertake massive snow clearance of inner lanes as well.

He also impressed upon the administration to ensure round the clock water and electricity supply to hospitals and other health care centers. “I hope the administration will stick to a particular electricity schedule. It has also been brought to my notice that various mosques across Kashmir are yet to receive their fire-wood. The loopholes should be plugged forthwith. Meantime proper heating arrangements and Covid protocol should be maintained for aspirants and students and all the exam centers across Kashmir division and upper reaches of Jammu division including Chenab and Pir Panjal districts. Directives should be given to concerned DC’s to make all the facilities available to people in Gurez, Dawar, Keran, Machil, Wadwan, Paddar, Kapran, and other upper reaches of both the Jammu and Kashmir divisions,” he added.
