Living in the opens, relief camps, homeless, people in Srinagar are trying hard to search food. The government hasn’t been efficient enough to provide relief to most of the affected people. The local kitchens are being used to cook food for the people who were able to reach to any dry area. Thousands still remain stranded in their houses, surrounded by water, without any help. The Kashmir Walla received several calls from stranded people’s relatives saying, saying their kiths and kins haven’t eaten for days.

Nazir Masoodi, NDTV Correspondent in Kashmir, earlier in the afternoon told the news channel that whatever the media is reporting is tip of the ice berg, the reality is different. “It is a major humanitarian crisis. People are crying but the relief is not reaching out to them. People are shouting from their roofs, give us one drinking water bottle,” he added.

Masoodi also said that the entire state government has itself submerged. “Government can’t do anything, it needs some extraordinary effort to deal with this disaster. We don’t know how many have died. I could see several houses collapsed.”

The Kashmir Walla needs you, urgently. Only you can do it.

We have always come to you for help: The Kashmir Walla is battling at multiple fronts — and if you don’t act now, it would be too late. 2020 was a year like no other and we walked into it already battered. The freedom of the press in Kashmir was touching new lows as the entire population was gradually coming out of one of the longest communication blackouts in the world.

We are not a big organization. A few thousand rupees from each one of you would make a huge difference.

The Kashmir Walla plans to extensively and honestly cover — break, report, and analyze — everything that matters to you. You can help us.
