Amarnath Yatra Caused Trouble in Daily Lives of Kashmiris: Mehbooba Mufti

Former Jammu and Kashmir CM and Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) chief Mehbooba Mufti claimed that the measures made for the annual Amarnath Yatra adversely affect the day-to-day lives of locals.

“Amarnath Yatra is taking place since years. Kashmiris waited for this yatra throughout year.  But unfortunately, the arrangements done this year are against the people of Kashmir. It’s causing a lot of trouble in the day-to-day lives of local people,” the PDP chief quoted.

Mehbooba said she has asked J&K Governor Satya Pal Malik to intervene in the matter.”I would like to request the Governor to intervene in this,” she said.

Notably, in a bid to allow incident-free route to vehicles carrying Amarnath pilgrims the Jammu and Kashmir authorities restricted the civilians on the use of Jammu-Srinagar highway.

Not just Mufti, but the former CM of J&K & National Conference leader Omar Abdullah also hit out at Governor Malik’s management over closure of railway line and national highways.

“It’s not that we are unconcerned about yatri security, far from it. It’s that the administration of Governor Malik is the only administration in 30 years that has required the closure of the highway/railway line to protect yatris and that’s the height of incompetence & laziness,” Abdullah claimed.
