In Indian illegally occupied Jammu and Kashmir, the residents of Mehjoor Nagar in Srinagar staged a protest against the curtailment of ration supplies.

locals told the media that on Monday morning, people hit roads in the Mehjoor Nagar area of Srinagar and blocked the traffic raising slogans demanding ration.

“We are being provided either 3 kilogram to 5 kilogram of rice per person for a month, which is insufficient to meet the needs of Kashmiri families, where rice is the staple food,” a protester said, adding that the allotted quota was insufficient and is now declining further.

They said that the locals are already suffering due to water and power shortages, inflation and unemployment, and the authorities have added to their woes as only a 4kg ration is available for one consumer at a ration depot.—KMS
