Srinagar, March 11, 2019 (PPI-OT): In occupied Kashmir, the Kashmir Economic Alliance Chairman, Haji Muhammad Yasin Khan expressing serious concern over frequent closure of the Srinagar-Jammu highway, has said that the pathetic condition of this only road link to the outside world has taken the Kashmir valley and its people hostage.

The KEA Chief in a statement issued in Srinagar said, over seven million souls living in Kashmir have left at the mercy of landslides disrupting the highway connectivity only because alternative links to Kashmir including need to make Mughal Road an all-seasons connectivity have not been explored even after 70 years.

Haji Muhammad Yasin Khan, who also heads Kashmir Traders and Manufacturers Federation said while the rest of the world is getting benefitted through advancement of technology, the Srinagar-Jammu highway has taken a reverse gear. “In the last three months, the highway remained closed for over three dozen times which is something alarming and this badly affected normal life and economic activities in the region,” he added.
