Srinagar: Expressing concern over poorest-ever civic amenities being given to the Kashmiri people, the Kashmir Economic Alliance led by Muhammad Yasin Khan on Tuesday said Kashmir in general and summer capital of Srinagar are reeling under administrative chaos.
Khan, who also heads Kashmir Traders and Manufactures Federation, said while the government enjoys life in warmth of Jammu, snow bound Kashmir has been left to fend for itself as administration is failing to provide even the basic amenities.
He said the Power Development Department (PDD) has taken the entire Kashmir hostage as poor power supply has made lives of people miserable. While the snow clearance was never done properly even in the city, the plight of people elsewhere can only be imagined, he said in a statement.
He said after snowfall, water logging has emerged as the new crisis in the Valley. Even the commercial hub of Lal Chowk, Regal Chowk and adjoining areas are flooded as a result of which business has come to a grinding halt, Khan said.
The KEA chief said, as if this all was not enough traffic jams have a proved last nail in the coffin of the administrative inability. Traffic mess has festered and people remain stranded for hours.
He said the systematic collapse of the administration seems to be part of some game plan to keep the people of Kashmir in pain.
Theres no administration but only a systematic and well defined arrangement of revenge with the already victimised people of Kashmir while business fraternity is facing the brunt, Khan added.
