Excelsior Correspondent

Srinagar, July 7: The Jammu and Kashmir Socio-Economic Coordination Committee (JKSECC) today deplored the delay in withdrawal of the ban imposed by the Government on the movement of the locals along the highway during Amarnath Yatra.
The amalgam said that the order is adversely affecting all segments of society, in particular patients in ambulances, students, horticulturists, tourists and most of all the locals who work on day to day basis. “Even the dead bodies were not spared and the same are being asked to wait for 2 to 3 hours,” it said.
The constituent members of the amalgam also observed that there is no benefit to the economy of Kashmir. “Unlicensed and unhygienic langers, from outside, are allowed to run left, right and centre without any authority.”
“We suggest to the State Administrative Council (SAC) to do away with this unwanted ban forthwith and without any delay, keeping in view the sentiments as have been expressed here-in-before, as also the order is anti-people, therefore, bad in all manners,” it said.
