Around 25 boats flown in to Awantipura air base for South Kashmir rescue ops and are being sent to the affected areas
50 more boats are on the way and will be launched as soon as they arrive
The boats have begun rescuing people. And operations will continue as long as they are needed
The boats flown in from Delhi have been launched in Srinagar's worst affected areas of Indranagar, Shivpura, Rajbagh
Many of you have tweeted for help today. We are trying our best.
Grateful to @PMOIndia for additional assistance of Rs.1000 crore and continued support @narendramodi
Further boats will be deployed in Srinagar by this evening
20 boats arriving from Delhi will be deployed in worst affected areas of Srinagar shortly incl Rajbagh, Shivpura, etc
Update on situation: State Govt has asked Air Force to begin air rescue ops in Srinagar, also endorsed by the PM
This is an unprecedented situation & we are doing the best we can under the circumstances. Please don't panic, we will reach you, I promise.
Also asked Cab Sec to direct Air Force to use helicopters to evacuate people most in danger, 'copters are on stand by & will be used 3/n
I've spoken to Cab Sec heading crisis mngt team in Delhi to direct airlifting of boats to Srinagar urgently via NDMA & Army, being done 2/n
To all of you tweeting for help/rescue we are doing our best to reach all ASAP. Please stay in the upper floors & wait for help to come 1/n
Eid Mubarak to all of you. May Allah shower his choicest blessings on all of us.
Heartiest congratulations @Abhinav_Bindra, absolutely superlative effort. Will look forward to seeing the medal in person like last time.
My condolences to the families of the 2 brave JK police personnel who laid down their lives in separate militant attacks in the past 24 hrs.
On this the 15th anniversary my heartfelt tribute to those brave soldiers killed & injured on the battlefields of #Kargil
I'd like to see how the BJP/SS would have reacted if a Muslim MP had forced a non-Muslim Vegetarian to eat meat. Shame on them.
For it to be spun now as a Cong decision is wrong & a complete distortion of the facts, not surprising but incorrect none the less 3/3
I explained the reasons but also told her I wouldn't be making a public announcement because I didn't want it to look opportunistic 2/n
I met the Mrs Gandhi 10 days ago & thanked her for all her support. I conveyed NC's decision to fight the elections alone 1/n
On our part we will inquire in to the circumstances surrounding Suhail's death & any unnecessary use of force or violation of SOP's. 3/3
The people organising & orchestrating these protests need to ask themselves whether they feel any guilt over this youth's death today 2/n
Terrible tragedy, the death of Suhail in Quimoh today. Anger over the deaths in Gaza is understandable, exploiting that anger is not 1/n
The accident happened with an army truck but it was an accident, not a deliberate action. I hope better sense & cooler heads prevail.
Only in Kashmir can a tragic accident be exploited by ordering a 2 day shutdown & protests after Friday prayers. Height of exploiting pain.
The deaths in the two road accidents in Kishtwar & Srinagar are extremely tragic. My heartfelt condolences to the families of the deceased.
:-) good one “@lufthansa: The best extra weight we've ever carried!
I have never heard a CEO or banker criticize a budget speech, any budget speech, on TV. Never.

Also looking forward to some forward movement on the Kashmiri Migrant return package that has been pending with the centre for few years 2/2
Looking forward to Budget 2014. Hope there is something specific for the state's infrastructure and connectivity. 1/2
Glad to be back in Srinagar after very productive meetings with the Union Ministers for Food & Roads.
It was a pleasure to call on & spend some time talking to Dr Manmohan Singh. I will always be grateful for his support & advice.
The train won't go to Vaishno Devi it will go to Katra. It's still a 15 KM climb to the temple so "train to Vaishno Devi" is overselling it.
Up in Gulmarg no less “@dhume: Best state! MT @swag_swami: Two chief ministers of Tamil Nadu in a single frame:
Briefed @narendramodi about the security situation & the assessment for the next few months inc the prep's for Amarnath Ji yatra. @PMOIndia
Called on @PMOIndia this evening. Discussed the situation in the state inc tourism, the economy, electricity & employment avenues. 1/2
Had a very productive meeting with @HMOIndia this morning. Briefed him about the security environment in J&K and also outstanding issues.
I've opposed it & have explained my opposition particularly in the context of J&K where our official languages are English & Urdu. 2/2
Slam - Slang To criticize harshly; censure forcefully. To suggest that I've "slammed" imposition of Hindi is an exaggeration 1/2

Wow, that was one hell of a goal from Cahill!!!!
Ch Aslam was one of the most accomplished Congress leaders & did a lot to uplift the nomadic Gujjar community. May his soul rest in peace.
I condole the death of Ch Aslam, former Speaker & former minister of J&K. He was the sitting MLA from Surankote in Poonch area of Jammu 1/2
A strong PMO is one thing but if a minister can't be trusted to choose a private secretary how can he/she be trusted to run a ministry?
"And don't forget: keep your feet on the ground and keep reaching for the stars." was how Casey Kasem signed off. Not a bad lesson to learn.
R.I.P. Kemal Amin "Casey" Kasem, the voice that introduced me to some of my favourite 80's hits through recordings of the US Top 40.
Co-chaired an important security review with @arunjaitley. I'm glad he returns to Delhi with an appreciation of the situation & challenges.
So very happy for Parvez Rasool. He's got his 1st ODI wicket with the dismissal of Anamul. Let's hope this is the 1st of many, well done.
