  • 1

Former finance minister Syed Mohammad Altaf Bukhari on Thursday demanded immediate revocation of closing the Srinagar-Jammu highway for two days a week.Bukhari said that prohibiting civilian traffic tantamount to confining people of the state to their homes without any reasonable justification.

“Government wants to enforce curfew for two days a week without bothering for the miseries it can cause to people,” Bukhari said.He said that the forces must adopt other means of hassle free convoy movement without putting the people to immense inconvenience.

The government on Wednesday announced that there shall be no movement of civilian traffic on the highway from Udhampur in Jammu till Baramulla in north Kashmir for two days every week to facilitate movement of forces for the upcoming parliamentary elections.
