Any kind of lawlessness that can be thought of is prevalent in Kashmir. With traffic authorities virtually absconding from city roads, transport authorities vanished in thin air and the government almost invisible in the Valley, it won’t be out of place to say that there is total anarchy in the state.
Hence there is literally nobody to whom the general masses would complain about their sufferings.
On 2nd of May, I board a mini bus plying from Batmaloo to Pirbagh. I got in to the bus near Iqbal Park stand and handed over a fifty (50) rupees note to the conductor. I told him that I have to go to Parraypora, where he returned me the change for rupees forty four. I asked him why he was charging a fare of rupees six (6) for a distance of four and a half kilometres, whereas the fare up to Bagat Chowk is only four rupees. He argued illogically saying that there has been a hike of 50% in the fares and so he charged thus. I want to know what kind of a system is this where everyone is a boss in himself. It is time for the city traffic cops to wake up and end this anarchy.
