Highway ban turning into humanitarian disaster: Sajad Lone

Peoples Conference (PC) chairman Sajad Gani Lone on Sunday said that the banning of civilian movement on highway is turning into humanitarian disaster and requested the Governor SP Malik to scrap the order.

“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,” Sajad Lone said on twitter.

The move has drawn flak from various sections of the society.

To facilitate the movement of security convoys for the parliamentary polls starting April 11, the government has banned civilian traffic twice a week (from 4 am to 5 pm on Sunday and Wednesday) on a 270-km stretch of the highway from Udhampur in Jammu to Baramulla in Kashmir.

The order shall remain in force till May 31.
