Normal life remains disrupted in Kashmir
Normal life remained affected in Kashmir for the 88th consecutive day on Tuesday due to the separatist-sponsored strike, but the signs of fatigue from the nearly three month long unrest were visible as more people are resuming their day-to-day activities.
Many street vendors and hand cart vendors have set up their stalls along the TRC Chowk-Batamaloo axis in the city, selling fruits, vegetables, fresh juice, tea and snacks at many places and continue with their business activities throughout the day, officials said.
They said some shopkeepers have also opened their shops partially in the civil lines areas of the summer capital Srinagar and at few areas in the outskirts of the city.
There has been a significant increase in the movement of private and public transport, except buses, in uptown city including in the commercial hub of Lal Chowk, the officials said.
They said the authorities have not put curbs on the movement of people anywhere in the Valley.
