“From past two years you have telling that machinery will be procured to clear snow. Those heavy machines will be suitable for far flung areas. At least use tractors for snow clearance.

Shah told reporters that Government of India is treating Kashmir as a ‘colony’. “Government of India has destroyed every institution in Jammu and Kashmir. It is my land, my water and still my area is reeling under darkness. Our 90% water share goes to Northern India where people get uninterrupted electric supply and here people are without electricity. We are jobless, waterless and without electricity. Our snowfilled roads are in shambles and they preach lessons of development. Now people of Jammu and Leh and Kargil have started understanding the importance of Article 370,” he said.
