Farooq Abdullah Promises “Autonomy Resolution” if National Conference Voted To Power

In an article, Indian Express reports that a WhatsApp group titled ‘Save Heart Kashmir’  was launched by doctors from across Kashmir a year and a half ago to guide and treat patients through online connection and has saved more than seven hundred people so far.

The functioning of the group has been halted since August 5th due to the suspension of internet services. While hospitals remain close and no transport available, the lack of access to such online facilities has rendered the people of territory totally helpless.  The group connected 120 hospitals and over 1200 doctors for providing quick advice and treatment to the people.
