Heavy untimely snowfall has thrown life out of gear in Jammu and Kashmir. Key road links are blocked and there is complete breakdown of power supply in the Valley. Apple growers are badly hit and thousands of apple trees have been covered with thick snow. Most homes in Kashmir are without electricity for the last two days and students were seen writing their exams in candle light. Many hospitals are also without power supply. Power department officials have told NDTV that supply is likely to be restored by the evening in most places. Around 7000 workers are trying to restore electricity in the state.
