Srinagar, April 13 (IANS) Srinagar administration has decided to allow some groceries and shops selling essentials to open in parts of the city as part of a response system following the complete lockdown enforced in March.
Srinagar DC Shahid Choudhary told IANS that the move has been taken to ease the difficulties of people in Srinagar.
"We have been getting a lot of distress calls, so we have decided to allow some groceries and a few stores selling essentials to open in order to reduce the pressure," Choudhary said.
