SRINAGAR: Dr. Omar rides a bicycle to reach hospital as a mark of  protest as govt implements civil vehicle ban on national highway. 

"I intend to ride my cycle from Srinagar to Sopore as a mark of protest against the Highway closure",Omer said

As a doctor, I feel the pain of the loss of livelihood of a lot of people who use the Highway for their daily needs. Roads of the modern age are not just roads, they are the arteries of the economy of a nation. Close them, you choke the nation. Even for an hour. That's why traffic jams cause so much chaos and loss. Even in the worst of times in Kashmir, the main roads have always been left open for important travel. 

To close the main highway for any reason for over 12 hours, is to choke the people. Hence, in solidarity with the people who live along the Highway and use the Highway for their daily needs, I will be cycling to Hospital, and as long as the closure remains, I will refuse all fees and charges from patients. It will cause me personal losses of thousands of rupees, but it is a small price to pay for the people of Kashmir. I stand with Kashmir. Dr Omar told reporters.
