Omar calls highway ban ‘mindless’ decision, Sajad says highway ban changing into a human disaster


Srinagar, Apr 07 (KNS): National Conference vice president and former Jammu and Kashmir chief minister Omar Abdullah and Peoples Conference chairman Sajad Gani Lone have slammed government for ban on highway which implemented for the first time has crippled normal activity across Jammu and Kashmir.

“Driving to Uri I’m getting to see first hand the extent of disruption & inconvenience that is being caused to people because of the mindless highway closure order that is in place today,” Omar tweeted.

Echoing Omar Abdullah on highway ban PC chairman and former minister Sajad Gani Lone took to twitter and wrote, “The highway ban is now turning into a humanitarian disaster. Flooded will calls from across the state. People in dire need to travel in order to tend to their day to day needs of survival stuck in a state of helplessness. @jandkgovernor urgently needs to scrap the inhuman order.” (KNS)
