New Delhi: Communication services were suspended in the wake of tension in the state following the removal of Section 370 by the Modi government from Jammu and Kashmir. Mobile, internet and landline phone services are completely suspended in the state for security reasons. But now the situation in the valley is getting increasingly normal. People welcome the decision of the central government.
According to sources, the government is likely to start landline phone services in the Valley from Saturday in view of the normalcy. However, the decision will be taken only after reviewing the security arrangements at the grassroots level in the state. That being said, the decision could be taken by Friday evening. The situation in the Kashmir valley is said to be normal now. Not a single incident of violence has been reported in the last 5 days.
Security is still in place in some parts of Srinagar. Also, all government officials have been instructed to reach their offices. Quoting official sources, it is also being reported that all schools and colleges can be opened in the Kashmir valley from 19th of August. School colleges in the Valley were closed after Section 370 was removed.
