“At Jamia today,with anguish and concern we witness total apathy and callousness of the authorities towards the people of Kashmir,struggling with the fall out of adverse weather conditions. With no plan or concern to ameliorate the difficulties of people and the repeated shutting down of Srinagar Jammu road ,we demand that all traditional routes be opened to facilitate travel and supplies of essentials,” Mirwaiz tweeted.

“As people are left to fend for themselves facing a crisis,thousands are stranded on highways without basic amenities. No food,  medicines, accommodation. The only activity that the authoritarian state is proactive in are the CASO’s meant to kill,maim,terrorise and destroy people,” he said.

Minutes after Ladakh was announced as the third administrative division of the state, former Jammu and Kashmir chief minister Omar Abdullah promised division status for Chenab Valley and Pir Panjal regions if his party was voted to power in upcoming elections.
