Srinagar: Opposition Peoples Democratic Party on Sunday accused Jammu and Kashmir Chief Minister Omar Abdullah of responding to the electricity crisis in the Valley with "juvenile pranks".

"Kashmir has gone back to the stone age, thanks to collapse of government under Omar Abdullah. He is responding with juvenile pranks to a crisis in Kashmir valley that is result of malfunctioning of his government than by any natural phenomenon," PDP president Mehbooba Mufti said.

"The announcement of Chief Minister to postpone restoration of electricity to the VIP areas of Srinagar is meaningless as all the VIPs including ministers and top bureaucrats are in Jammu," she said in a statement.

Mehbooba also alleged that the water supply was out of gear, hospitals were unable to cope with the inflow of patients, and the telecommunication system had broken down in the state.

The recent snowfall had exposed the tall claims of the government, which had failed to minimise the miseries of the common masses at the time of crisis, she alleged.
