Srinagar, Aug 31: There was very little respite for the people of Srinagar and other major towns as life remained crippled for the 10th day on Sunday, Aug 31 due to the strike, though authorities relaxed curfew.
Passenger transport remained off the roads. However, private cars, scooters and some three wheelers could be seen plying on the city roads.
Shops and business establishments remained closed because of Sunday though the authorities have urged shopkeepers to open their establishments so that people could purchase essentials.
However, roadside vendors did a brisk business as they were selling their products at normal rates.
The government offices also remained closed because of holiday Sunday, Aug 31.
People from different parts of the city alleged that despite repeated claims by the Consumer Affairs and Public Distribution (CA&PD) the ration depot remained closed.
However, milk, bread, vegetables and other essentials were available. The authorities have issued special curfew passes to milkmen for distribution of milk.
