Srinagar: Apni Party President Syed Mohammad Altaf Bukhari, on Tuesday, urged the administration to ensure all the required arrangements to deal with the challenges and problems caused by widespread snowfall across the valley.

He emphasised that the concerned departments must be prompt and responsive to the needs of the people, especially those who have lost road connectivity due to heavy snowfall.

In a statement issued here, Syed Mohammad Altaf Bukhari said, “Due to the heavy snowfall in most areas across the valley, several roads, including the Srinagar-Jammu National Highway, Srinagar-Leh, Mughal Road, Bandipora-Gurez, and roads leading to Keran/Karnah border towns, have been closed. The administration must ensure that the concerned populations, who have lost road connectivity to other areas, do not suffer due to the scarcity of food supplies and other essentials, especially medical facilities. Additionally, the concerned departments must be vigilant in avalanche-prone areas to ensure no human casualties occur due to snow avalanches, landslides, and falling stones.”

“Some reports suggest that hundreds of vehicles have become stranded amid falling rocks in the Ramban area. The administration must be alerted to keep track of the stranded vehicles and be prompt in addressing any medical requirements that may arise along the highway,” he added.

He urged the concerned authorities to ensure prompt snow clearing on the roads in Srinagar and other towns in the valley.
