According to the June 27order issued by the director of the Food, Civil Supplies and Consumer Affairs Department in Kashmir, Farooq Khan, an advisor to Jammu and Kashmir has passed directions in a meeting held on June 23 to ensure sufficient quantity of liquefied gasoline in the valley as the supply of the same gets affected due to closure of national highway due to frequent landslides.

Terming the order as most urgent, the director asked the oil companies to make sufficient stocks of LPG at bottling plants and distribution depots which can last up to two months.

Interestingly, former chief minister, Omar Abdullah cited another communiqué by district police lines Ganderbal for making provisions for lodging central forces and said such orders create panic in Kashmir and sought an explanation from the government.

“Government orders are creating panic in Kashmir and after all lies last year even if govt explains, hardly any one of us will take the assurance at face value. Still need to explain these orders,” he tweeted while alluding to abrogation of Article 370.

The senior superintendent of police Ganderbal in his letter to district administration to make available 16 educational institutions in the district as these building were required for accommodating the central security forces.
