Srinagar: Srinagar in Jammu and Kashmir received snowfall on Saturday night.
A resident Jawed Ahmad said, “Due to snowfall, people have got some comfort but at the same time, the troubles too have mounted. For the last three days, there is no electricity. Roads are closed. We appeal to the government to restore electricity. It is difficult even to move.”
Another civilian Khalid said, “Yes there are troubles but there are comforts too because it is a natural beauty here. This will (positively) affect tourism here.”
