Jammu and Kashmir chief minister Omar Abdullah said on Wednesday that he missed the fun and thrill of the season's heaviest snowfall as both surface and air links were suspended to the Kashmir valley for the second day. Abdullah, who is known for his love for nature and skiing on the slopes in north Kashmir's Gulmarg hill station, said on Wednesday, he would have wished to welcome 2014 at his home in Srinagar.
"I wish I was in the valley tonight to see in 2014, alas it wasn't to be. Anyway, am not sticking around till midnight so happy New Year," he wrote on twitter, adding he hoped 2014 brings in peace and prosperity to the people of the state and the country.
"Here's hoping 2014 is full of peace, happiness, success and prosperity for all of you. May all your wishes come true. See U guys next year," he said in another post on twitter site.
The Kashmir valley received the season's heaviest snowfall on Tuesday and all links - road, rail and air - between the Kashmir valley and the rest of the country since remained suspended.
While the strategic Srinagar-Jammu highway remained closed for the second day on Wednesday, authorities said rail and air traffic would resume only after the weather clears.
