CRPF lacking winter clothing in valley

Over 200 companies of Central Reserve Police Force (CRPF), called during unrest in Kashmir Valley, have been left at the mercy of God without any infrastructure in bone chilling weather. This is a matter of grave concern for both security forces as well as for government. Even during the time of Kashmir unrest, government has called in these forces to bring the situation under control but authorities mocking the security forces had assured to provide compensation to the people triggering protests in the valley but till date failed to provide them adequate warm clothing to fight against cold season.
As per CRPF sources, over 200 companies of the central forces have been specially called from different states of the country to control the situation which lingered for over four months. The companies comprising 120 jawans each were airlifted to Srinagar who are deployed at different locations of the Kashmir, there CRPF personnel have been forced to live in hostile conditions without any basic facilities. Government should come forward and provide them adequate clothing and other heating equipments so that they can easily be fit in this winter season. One side they have to fight against violent protestors and other side they have also to fight against winter. However, the most of the companies are holding up in schools and other educational institutions which do not have proper facilities. During their movements towards the valley at unrest time, they had not carried any jacket or woollens to sustain winters and the personnel from already deployed 60 companies are now helping fellow jawans with jackets. Authorities is showing solidarity towards the common public of the valley but ignoring the jawans who are deploying there for their protection from anti-social elements as well as from militants.
The government is not providing any facility to the jawans and has been left at the mercy of god and even the daily essential commodities, including fuel is being shared from existing companies.
