Srinagar, January 18:
Apni Party Chief Coordinator Abdul Majeed Padder on Monday expressed his profound grief over the death of two minor children belonging to a Bakerwal family who died in Brinal Lammar area of Devsar, Kulgam due to intense cold.
In a statement issued here, Padder raised alarm over the difficulties faced by such nomadic tribal communities who possess no comfortable shelter to protect their families in the prevailing harsh winter.
“The untimely death of these two kids is appallingly unfortunate and heart wrenching. I urge the administration to provide necessary aid to such families who are facing severe problems this winter due to extreme cold,” he pleaded.
Apni Party Chief Coordinator urged the district administration Kulgam to disburse the ex gratia relief to the families of deceased children. He also called upon the divisional administration Kashmir to issue the relevant advisories through all district level offices so that the vulnerable sections of the society are prevented from the weather vagaries.
