Doorstep Delivery of commodities in Jammu and Kashmir

The curfew was reportedly reimposed in certain parts of Jammu and Kashmir. Reports state that loudspeaker-mounted police vehicles asked the shopkeepers to close their shops and people to return to their homes.

In this context, the Jammu and Kashmir administration issued a statement yesterday stating that all the necessary arrangements have been made for the public to get the necessary commodities and ration.

The announcement revealed that 3557 ration ghats have been made operational in Kashmir division out of 3697 Ration ghats. The doorstep delivery of vegetables, eggs, poultry and LPG has been ensured through mobile vans.

300 special telephone booths have been established to help common public communicate with their relatives on the occasion of the festival. Liaison Officers in various places would help students communicate with their families to celebrate Eid.


Earlier on Friday, due to the relaxation of the restrictions, people offered prayers in their local mosques.

Reports stated that the Valley was peaceful except the occurrence of minor incidents of stone-pelting. The incident was dealt with efficiently as the officials said.

A media report claimed that there was a protest by 10,000 people in Srinagar on Friday during the relaxation of restrictions.

Yet, the Central government slammed the report. The Home Ministry in a tweet said that this information is completely incorrect. Though there were a few stray protests in Srinagar and Baramulla, none of them involved more than 20 people.

The DGP of Jammu and Kashmir released a press note urging people to not believe fabricated news and that no firing has taken place. It also says that the situation is calm and people are cooperative. Many areas like Srinagar are crowded with people who are busy in Eid shopping.

Now, the biggest challenge is the Eid celebrations.

As per the officials, the restrictions may be eased further. Yet, a high alert has been out across the Valley.
