Government orders to stock LPG in Kashmir


Srinagar. Tensions between India and China have been increasing since the violent clashes in Ladakh. Meanwhile, in the order issued by the Department of Food Supplies and Consumer Affairs in Jammu and Kashmir, it has been said that adequate stock of LPG cylinders should be ensured as there may be problems in bringing LPG cylinders due to the closure of the highway in the coming days. The order said that due to the landslide, the supply of the national highway may be affected. But the fact is that the stock held by the oil companies can last for at least 15 days to a month and the need to issue such an order is not understood.

Second, the condition of the highway is not so bad that it should be closed for such a long period. A similar order was issued in July last year, before abolishing Section 370 and also before the Balakot air strike. Apart from this, a second order has also been issued in Jammu and Kashmir. According to the second order, orders have been given to evacuate the school buildings for security forces in Ganderbal. Ganderbal district in Kashmir is adjacent to Kargil in Ladakh. At the same time, on this matter, former Chief Minister Omar Abdullah has tweeted that the government's orders are creating panic in Kashmir.

In a second order, Superintendent of Police Ganderbal has requested 16 schools, educational institutions in the district to vacate the buildings. The order said that in view of the Amarnath Yatra -2020, these educational centers should be made available for the accommodation of Central Armed Police Forces (CAPF) companies. It is worth mentioning that Ganderbal is a district adjoining Kargil and the road route of Ladakh goes through this area.
