That there are complaints that Government is too slow to respond. This is an excerpt from the news report in the Victoria Times Columnist regarding the earthquake in India this past weekend.
The death toll in India exceeded 650 Sunday. Most of the deaths were in the Jammu-Kashmir border towns of Uri, Tangdar and Punch and Srinagar.
Hundreds of angry villagers blocked area roads, protesting the slow pace of rescue efforts. Locals demanded that journalists and soldiers with aid go to their mountainside villages.
"Everything is destroyed -- the ground shook and took everything down," Syad Hassan said.
Most people in Jammu-Kashmir spent the cold night in the open, lighting fires with wood from fallen houses to keep warm.
