SRINAGAR: In occupied Kashmir, with not even an iota of improvement in the situation on the ground, life continues to remain uncertain in the valley and parts of the Jammu region on the 96th consecutive day, today.
On November 3, the lockdown imposed in occupied Kashmir on August 5 by the Indian government crossed ninety days.
The security and communication clampdown has now entered its fourth month.
From north to south, business activities continue to remain suspended and public transport is off the road in the occupied territory.
Mobile calling service, broadband and pocket internet continue to remain shut on the 96th consecutive day, today.
Mass arrests of Kashmiri leaders were made as the government announced revoking the special status of occupied Jammu and Kashmir under Article 370 of the Indian constitution.
Most of the interiors in Srinagar’s old city continue to remain sealed with iron barricades and concertina wire while the deployment of police and paramilitary forces is intact.
The clampdown has not only affected inter-district road connectivity drastically but has also thrown great challenges for old city residents due to the shutting of factories, industries, and other workplaces.
The past over 90 days have also brought the challenging times for the patients who rely on the consumption of lifesaving drugs which is running short of stock in the valley.
The valley based chemists are pointing out at the prevailing uncertainty and the ongoing cellular gag as the major reason for the unavailability of the stocks of life-saving drugs.
