“It was a month of elation that Amarnath Yatra started but such unreasonable restriction orders will throw the life of every citizen out of gear. The logistic cost increases manifold, perishable goods get damaged, Zero facilities for Drivers and Cleaners along highway with no mobile toilets and the time limit of E-way bills expires,” he said.
He also blamed the State Administration for the condition of the Nashri to Banihal highway with worst condition of the roads and thousands of crores of tax payers money meant of maintenance siphoned off through corruption.
Gupta further demanded immediate withdrawal of restrictions imposed on civilian vehicles during the duration of Amarnath Yatra.
