Carrying demolition drive amid COVID19 is reckless: Masoodi

National Conference (NC) leader and Member of Parliament from Anantnag, Hasnain Masoodi Thursday took exception to the demolition drive carried out by the Pulwama district administration along the Srinagar-Jammu highway at Awantipora saying that the measure should have been put in abeyance in view of the winter and grim COVID19 situation.

“As if the torments suffered by the people on account of successive clampdown and COVID -19 induced lockdown were not enough, the government has now took it upon itself to make people homeless during the pandemic period and ongoing winter,” Masoodi said expressing dismay over the demolition drive.

“Almost all the households whose houses have been raised down alongside Srinagar-Jammu highways are poor,” he said.
