Govt responsible for losses worth 5 crore: Growers


Srinagar, Apr 09 (KNS): Without any reason, the authorities have stopped 50 apple laden trucks at Qazigund leaving the growers at a risk of losses worth crores.

President Fruit Growers and Dealers Association Mawer Raja Akbar told Kashmir News Service (KNS) that the trucks left on Sunday, but were stopped due to unknown reasons even on Monday.

“On Tuesday again the trucks were not allowed,” he said.

Akbar said now on Wednesday, the highway will be closed for civil traffic. “Our trucks are supposed to reach Delhi within 24 hours, else the fruit will get spoiled. It has been two days already. And trucks are still halted. We have suffered huge loss. The government is responsible for it,” he said. (KNS)
