National Conference working president Omar Abdullah on Sunday expressed serious concern over ATMs in Pir Panjal region being rendered dysfunctional for want of cash over the past few days and said this had become a cause of great inconvenience and misery for the people. 

“I have been approached by numerous delegations and organizations from the regions highlighting this issue and the Government should take immediate steps to resolve this problem. Thousands of people are suffering to undertake their day-to-day activities. Access to healthcare has been affected as people are unable to procure medications and visit hospitals. People in far-flung areas in Pir Panjal are finding it extremely hard to buy daily and essential supplies for the last three days”, Omar said in a statement. 

He demanded that government should ensure all ATMs in the region are made fully functional and stocked up with adequate cash to resolve this issue without any delay.
