'Ensure round the clock power supply & snow clearance on roads'

Srinagar, Dec 26 (KNS): Former MLA and Apni Party General Secretary Rafi Ahmad Mir on Sunday urged the government to facilitate winter sports activities in Pahalgam especially in Aru valley.

In a statement issued here, Mir said Pahalgam remains one of the famous tourist destinations in Kashmir valley which also has a great potential for winter sports.

"The government needs to look into the prospectus of developing Pahalgam, especially Aru valley into a winter tourism hub by initiating winter sports through which the local inhabitants and unemployed youth can also earn a dignified livelihood for their families," he said.

Mir asserted that Pahalgam receives comparatively less footfall in winters but if such activities begin here, it will considerably break that traditional outlook.

Besides, he also urged the administrative machinery to remain at guard in case snowfall while ensuring that roads are cleared and electricity supplies are maintained without any interruptions. (KNS)
