Amid the ongoing Corona lockdown across Jammu and Kashmir, over 120 truck drivers from different parts of India are stuck at Parimpora fruit Mandi. One truck driver from Haryana said he, along with other truck drivers, has been stuck in the Mandi for the last over ten days as the mandi has been closed since then.
Mandi president Bashir Ahmed said that the truck drivers are stranded as they are not able to unload the trucks amid the ongoing lockdown. He added that they are being allowed to work till 7 AM only due to which the trucks have not been unloaded properly.
“There are highly perishable items in trucks which got rotten. The administration should give us more time to unload the trucks like other parts of the country,” he said. “We have discussed this matter with Deputy Commissioner (DC) Srinagar Muhammad Aijaz Asad who assured that the matter will be resolved soon,” he told kashmirobserver.net.
