NC concerned over halting fruit trucks from IIOJK on highway

Srinagar, September 26 (KMS): In Indian illegally occupied Jammu and Kashmir, the National Conference has expressed concern over the halting of fruit trucks on highway, saying that detaining fruit laden trucks for days together on Srinagar-Jammu highway is taking a heavy toll on the local fruit industry.

The NC Member of Parliament from Islamabad, Hassnain Masoodi in a statement in Srinagar, while taking strong exception to the indifferent attitude of the administration towards the plight of fruit growers and traders, said that the frequent halting of the fruit laden trucks on highway is causing spoilage to the annual farm and horticultural produce from Kashmir much before it reaches different Mandis in various parts of the country.

Masoodi, while decrying the mismanagement of traffic on highway said, he has been taking the issue of ensuring smooth movement of traffic, particularly the supply trucks, tourists vehicles and trucks ferrying the annual produce from Kashmir both inside and outside the parliament with the concerned ministry.
