Heavy snow brings Kashmir to standstill

Poonch, Feb 08 (ANI): Kashmir woke up to fresh swathe of white flakes jamming daily life, commuters faced long and treacherous rides as snow-filled roads caused delays in public transit. Road authorities have started mechanical snow-clearing service, but incessant snowfall makes the roads slippery and unfavourable for travel. This is the third time within this week that snowfall has brought normal life to a stand still, leading to prolonged power cuts and even blocking of the arterial highway. Frequent blocking of the National-Highway, which is the arterial road link that connects Kashmir with rest of the country, due to non-stop snowfall makes life tough as essential supplies do not reach the valley on time.
