There were reports that some vehicles were on their way from Koksar toward Manali but the drivers had to return back as the road was not good for safe driving. However, inter-valley traffic movement of the district was as usual. However, fresh snow has sent the entire region reeling under cold and people were forced to stay indoors during the day to escape from biting cold.

Talking to The Tribune Mohan Lal Relingpa, a native of Malang village in Lahaul valley, said due to snowfall since morning entire area had been covered under thick blanket of snow.“For the last few days after weather cleared, farmers of the district had started potato, peas and other vegetable cultivation. But now they feared that the snow would damage seed of peas and other vegetables as these require some temperature for sprouting”, he remarked.The residents of Miyar valley and from Tandi ahead toward Peukar village in Tod valley were suffering due to lack of road connectivity since January as the PWD had failed to clear snow.

Sub Divisional Magistrate Manali HR Bhairwa said as the road was rendered unfit because of snowfall traffic movement had been suspended keeping public safety in mind. Traffic would only be allowed once snow over Rohtang Pass was cleared.BRO Commander Mayank Mehta he said inclement weather today had hampered snow clearance operation and the BRO was hopeful that the road would be opened till Monday afternoon if weather remains good.
