These families were living in make shift tents at Rajbagh after their homes were destroyed by the recent floods.

Demanding proper rehabilitation, the protesters shouted slogans against Jammu and Kashmir Chief Minister Omar Abdullah, and said they want him to see the conditions they are living in.

Many houses have turned into debris and most of the villages now present a sad picture.
