North Kashmir shuts down against the delay in flood compensation


A complete shutdown is being observed in Naidkhai and Sonawari areas of Bandipora district of north Kashmir today. The residents complain that there has been delay in compensation post the devastating deluge of September 2014. The locals alleged that they are yet to be compensated for the massive losses they have suffered during the floods.


“The floods damaged our shops and other business establishments and destroyed our crops but the irony is that the government is still blinded towards the responsibility of recovering our lives ,” said a resident.

They threatened to continue their strike if their demands were not fulfilled.

They alleged the local authorities were misguiding them on the compensation.
