With Jammu and Kashmir witnessing unprecedented political developments this year, it's only natural that the Valley's first snowfall of the season was hit by it. Heavy snowfall throughout last week blocked arterial roads and highways, plunged much of the Valley into darkness and cut off upper reaches of the region. It also found the new Union Territory administration wanting, leading to outrage on the streets over the 'complete breakdown' of the civil machinery. 'A lot of things changed with the scrapping of Article 370 but not the abject incompetence of the civil administration,' said Tajamul Ahmed, a local businessman at Lal Chowk.
