Srinagar | Monday, Oct 10 2016 IST
Taking a dig at state government over suspension of mobile internet services since July 9 in violence-hit Kashmir valley, main opposition National Conference (NC) working president Omar Abdullah today said it has become a way of life for people living here.

Mr Abdullah was responding to reports that mobile internet has been suspended since early this morning in Nashik in Maharashtra.

"Sorry to hear that. We've been without mobile internet in Kashmir for more than thtree months now, it has become a way of life for us here," Mr Abdullah, who is the former chief minister of J&K, wrote on micro-blogging site twitter.

Mr Abdullah was responding to a tweet, which read, "#Nashik mobile internet services not working since morning. There is undeclared shutdown of mobile Internet. This hasn't happened before!"

Normal life remained crippled for the 94th day due to curfew, restrictions and strike called by separatists in the entire Kashmir valley, where mobile internet remained suspended since July 9.

The current unrest, which was triggered by the killing of Hizbul Mujahideen (HM) commander Burhan Wani and two other militants in an encounter in Anantnag on July 8, has left 86 civilians dead and over 10,000 others injured in security force action.UNI ABS RSA 1448
