Due to continuous inclement weather conditions normal life has come to still in north Kashmir’s Kupwara district.

The continuous disruption of power supply and drinking water has resulted in immense problems for the people.

Though the important highways were cleared of snow across the district, the higher reaches including Karnah, Keran, Machil, Jumgund, Kumkadi, Batnard Khurhama, and Mankal remained cut off from the district headquarters for the second consecutive day.

People from Lolab, Kralpora, Haril, Hangnikote, Sarmarg, Behnipora, Hafrada, Falmarg, Khurhama, and Batnard allegedly said that authorities have not cleared roads of snow, creating inconvenience for them.

Deputy Commissioner Kupwara Imam Din told Greater Kashmir that though electricity was restored in most areas on Tuesday but because of continuous snowfall during the night, it led to disruption in the power supply.
