Curfew fallout: People run short of essential commodities
Srinagar, Feb 12: With Kashmir reeling under stringent curfew for the past four days, people are facing acute shortage of essential commodities and medicine.
The situation is grim in both rural as well as urban areas including Srinagar city, where people are facing acute shortage of milk and vegetables due to the restrictions imposed by the authorities.
Greater Kashmir Tuesday received scores of phone calls from different areas of Kashmir with people complaining of shortage of essential commodities and baby food.
Musaib Ahmad, a resident of Nowhatta said they are not allowed to venture out to fetch food and medicine. “We have being caged. This area is running short of essential commodities. For the past four days, we were not allowed to purchase milk and vegetables,” Ahmad said.
According to residents of Old Srinagar, the authorities did not even allow milkmen to move in the areas.
In absence of milk, people have been forced to take traditional Kashmiri Kehwa. “The state government is least bothered about the miseries of common people. By imposing indefinite curfew, people are running short of eatables,” said a caller from Bandipora.
The situation is no different in towns of North Kashmir including Ganderbal, Sumbal, Lar, Pattan, Sopore and Baramulla.
