“I’m waiting at the same place since 2 days. Many ill senior citizens are with us who are struggling. There are no ATMs, no banks and we are cashless. When the youngsters step out if the vehicles, the Police tries to physically harass them. What should we do here?” said a woman traveller
As per the passengers, more than 20 people sat together in a restaurant at a time. “What social distancing do you expect at a clustered place? Police tells to sit inside the vehicles due to the curfew. How are we supposed to follow it in a car?” they said
The travellers blamed the ‘failed Administration’ for their miserable conditions. According to them, people with sources were allowed to travel while the others were left unnoticed.
“No basic facilities are provided us, not even accommodation. We are sleeping in the vehicles. A notice about our travel towards Ladakh was issued for today which isn’t being followed. This is due to a failed Administration. People with contacts in the Department have left for their home while we are struggling to step out.” the passengers said
