 The Jammu-Srinagar national highway closed for third day also

The Jammu-Srinagar national parkway was shut for the third consecutive day on Monday, an authority said.

Therefore, the Amarnath Yatra segment from Jammu to the Kashmir Valley stayed suspended throughout the previous three days.

“Downpour and avalanches obstructed the Jammu-Srinagar national expressway at Kheri in Udhampur region today (Monday),” a senior authority of the state movement division told IANS here.

No “yatri” (pioneer) was permitted to move towards the Valley from Bhagwati Nagar Yatri Niwas in Jammu as a result of the parkway conclusion, he said.

“The interstate was restored for activity for quite a while yesterday (Sunday) evening, however must be shut today due to crisp downpour and avalanches in Kheri stretch of the street.”

“Expressway freedom operation is on and we are confident the interstate will be revived later today,” he included.
