Apple traders still expressing concerns over ‘unnecessary halting’ of trucks in Kashmir

Apple growers and traders in Kashmir valley continue to face hardships after hundreds of fruit-laden trucks are unable to pass freely on the arterial Jammu-Srinagar national highway. President of Kashmir Valley Fruit Growers Dealer's Association and New Kashmir Fruit Association, Bashir Ahmad Bashir, said that the growers and traders are staring at massive losses owing to the stops along the 300 km long highway that takes the valley-wide produce to its market outside the region.

"We are hopeful after the government issued advisories, but we don't see them being implemented on the ground with spirit," Bashir said. Bashir said he met with the highway authorities, the police and other senior administrative officials to discuss the issue to which they have expressed their support.
