After spending a week in the curfewed #Kashmir with my parents, I just got back to Jaipur

In this thread I discuss how restrictions on communication is affecting #Kashmiris living in or outside the valley

The communication ban & Curfew enters 10th day - Aug 14, 2019
With no landlines , mobiles, internet working in the valley , this is the second longest communication blockade witnessed since 2016.
And what makes it worst is that not even a single post office is operational from last 10 data since the valley is under curfew #KashmirUnreported
Administration has arranged telephone lines in the district HQs & police stations for parents who want to speak to their children.

BUT how do people reach those spots under curfew?

Is one telephone line sufficient for the population of lakhs ?

@HMOIndia #Kashmir
A common sight
Medical shops shut & ATMs with shutters down

Request to @diprjk @HMOIndia to facilitate
mobile ATMs
mobile medical vans
mobile telephone booths in every colony.

Citing a personal expierence, even I had to walk a few kms to get medicines #KashmirUnreported
Another common sight

Heaps of garbage , dead bovine and dogs are spotted almost outside every colony . 10 days already - and if no sweeper comes to work , besides foul smell there will be an outbreak of an epidemic.

@listenshahid @SwachhBharatGov
Thousands of marriage ceremonies scheduled to take place in last ten days have been widely cancelled . As uncertainty over curfew and communication blockade continues , the functions stand cancelled for over next one month in #Kashmir, as reported by local dailies last week
