KL Report


With sigh of relief, Chief Minister Omar Abdullah Monday said that the water level of the river Jhelum has gone below the danger mark in South Kashmir but the situation in still bad in a few areas of the state.

“The water level of Jhelum has come below the danger mark, so has the water level in South Kashmir and Srinagar which is a very good news, but in some areas the situation is still bad,” Omar said as reported by a local news agency.

As the flood water has started receding the apprehension for water-borne diseases is rising and the demand for filtered water has increased. Over 20 RO plants with a capacity to filter 4 lakhs litre per day from Hyderabad and four RO plants from Delhi with a capacity to filter 1 lakh litre per day were lifted to Srinagar.
