Srinagar District Magistrate rebuts The Wire report claiming shortage of life saving medicines in Kashmir

However, Shahid Choudhary, District Magistrate of Srinagar, quoted The Wire's story and retweeted, "All concerns and worries are deeply appreciated but we were not low on medical stocks even for a single day. No interruption in supplies. Still open to help individual cases, if any."

Leftist propaganda portal The Wire has been propagating lies and negativity in a bid to create fear among the people over the abrogation of Article 370 in Jammu and Kashmir (J&K). Headed by an American citizen Siddharth Varadarajan, the portal acts as propaganda machinery peddling lies and demonizing the Modi government.

Ever since the government of India repealed draconian Article 370, which granted separate status to J&K, The Wire has been toeing Pakistan line by publishing agenda based stories to show the Central government’s decision in bad light. It has been caught lying and pushing its agenda with ferocious intensity.

Today once again, it published a story on Kashmir that suggested a shortage of life-saving drugs. In the article titled “Kashmir Running Short of Life Saving Drugs as Clampdown Continues,” it suggested that local drug shops have run short of supplies in Srinagar district.

The article talks about the depleting medicine stocks, how the pharmacists in the valley have not been able to restock their supplies from Jammu as airliners and transporters are refusing to lift consignments for Kashmir.

However, Shahid Choudhary, District Magistrate of Srinagar, quoted The Wire’s story and tweeted, “All concerns and worries are deeply appreciated but we were not low on medical stocks even for a single day. No interruption in supplies. Still open to help individual cases, if any.”

The DM had stressed that there was never any shortage of medicine in the state for even a day, and said that the administration is ready to help any individual case of difficulty in procuring medicines.

This one tweet from valley’s bureaucrat demolishes the lies of the propaganda portal, which leaves no opportunity to peddle it’s agenda of fear-mongering over the present situation in Kashmir.

Last week also, Shahid Choudhary had denied reports of wide-scale unavailability of medicines in Kashmir, informing that as many as 1166 medicine shops are open. He had informed that stocks were being replenished as demanded, and although some people were facing some difficulties, the administration was addressing every single problem brought to their notice.
