The National Conference has asked the administration to augment its response to the issues faced by people in wake of heavy snowfall across Kashmir.

NC president Dr Farooq Abdullah has urged the administration to ensure snow clearance on major routes especially those leading to health facilities; power and water supply, stock and adequate distribution of essential commodities including medicines, LPG, kerosene and edibles. “Prices of air tickets to and from Srinagar have skyrocketed as has been the trend every winter season,” Dr Farooq said adding that uncapped and unregulated air travel prices in our sector has been a long pending issue which authorities need to address immediately.
