It’s known the fact that ever since the special privileges (Article370 and 35(A)) of Jammu and Kashmir were scraped off, the Centre has imposed heavy restrictions on the public, communication and vehicle movement. Around a month later today, the centre has stated that the situation in J & K is slowly turning back to normal and the restrictions are being lifted, per the Ministry Of Home Affairs (MHA).
In the reports, MHA stated that all the landline phone connections have been restored. Schools and health institutions were turned out to be functional. Whereas, banks and ATMs were also set to be free and making the cash transactions of Rs 1.08 Crores. On the side of health institutions, they all are fully functional with 510,870 Out-Patient-Departments (OPD) and 15,157 surgeries. On the other hand MEA Secretary (East) Vijay Thakur Singh said that “Democratic processes have been initiated. Restrictions are being eased continuously. Temporary preventive and precautionary measures were necessitated to ensure safety and security of our citizens in the face of credible threats of cross-border terrorism”.
