National Conference on Monday censured the incumbent administration for its "mismanagement of the exigencies that rose in wake of the recent snowfall."
In a statement, NC general secretary, Ali Muhammad Sagar, said that "the administration was caught unprepared while dealing with the situation after widespread snowfall across the state."
"The catchphrases of the incumbent administration stand exposed in wake of the recent snowfall. The incumbent administration was busy politicking leaving the administration in lurch," he said.
Sagar said that Governor's administration left the people to deal with the situation on their own and that the news reports about people suffering at the leading state hospitals are a case in point. "In the associated hospitals of Government Medical College (GMC) Srinagar, patients complained of bitter cold throughout the night as rains and snow lashed Kashmir from late Friday evening. The snowfall made the condition worse for the patients due to non-availability of heating arrangements in the hospitals," Sagar said.
