The only lifeline connecting Paddar from Kishtwar has been washed away at different places due to Western Disturbances in northern part of India resulting in heavy rain and snowfall in the previous week. The vehicular traffic is completely out of gear for the past 4-5 days putting the commuters at great hardship.
The place where major portion of land sunk off is “Galhar” where the authorities should put men and machinery into service and clear the road on war footing. The other portion is between Galhar and Shasho which has been devastated by heavy avalanche at the point “Chirdi Nallah”. According to reliable sources the road is expected to be cleared by today evening or tomorrow.
Here are some snaps of the road which are contributed by Milan Rana & Gopal Parihar.
