PULWAMA — People in a hamlet of southern Kashmir’s Pulwama district complained of being abandoned to snow, accusing district authorities of not clearing snow from the roads.

The locals in Rahmoo village’s Rather Mohalla said that they had few ailing persons in the locality and waiting for the district authorities to clear snow proved futile. “We gathered some local boys here and carried out a snow clearance drive,” Ghulam Nabi Dar, a local said.

Ghulam Nabi added, “People have lost faith and they now have to clear the roads themselves. We should not be dependent entirely on the government authorities and need to do such things in a cooperative manner.”

The residents’ gesture proved a boon, as an important link-road was cleared and made motorable for traffic. People deemed it utterly urgent as there were many bedridden patients, who might suddenly needed medical attention.

Meanwhile, the major roads in the southern district have now been cleared by the district administration, as Deputy Commissioner Pulwama, Raghav Langer himself monitored the road connectivity restoration process.
