Over 3500 trucks carrying essential commodities, fuel reached Kashmir

Srinagar,  Feb 13 (PTI) Over 3500 trucks carrying essential commodities and fuel Wednesday reached Kashmir, easing shortage of these goods in the valley, following resumption of traffic on the Srinagar-Jammu National highway which was closed for a week due to heavy snowfall and incessant rains in the region. The resumption of traffic on the 270-km highway came as a major relief to the stranded passengers and the people of Kashmir who were facing shortage of essential commodities.

"The situation is totally under control and the stock position regarding the essential commodities and other important services has stabilised now," an official of the divisional administration said here. The official said that 3000 trucks, 504 oil tankers and 3400 Light Motor Vehicles (LMV) reached valley on Wednesday.

"There is no dearth of essential commodities in the valley and tomorrow (Thursday) more stranded vehicles will reach the valley," he said. The official said that the divisional administration has also abolished the earlier order directing petrol pumps to go for rationing of fuel.
