Fruit growers hold protest demonstration in Sopore

Srinagar, September 14 (KMS): In Indian illegally occupied Jammu and Kashmir, fruit growers staged a peaceful protest demonstration, today, in Sopore town of north Kashmir’s Baramulla district against the halting of fruit-laden trucks along Srinagar-Jammu highway.

Scores of fruit growers assembled inside fruit mandi Sopore and demanded smooth transportation of fruit-laden trucks along the highway.

The president of Fruit Mandi Sopore, Fayaz Ahmed Malik, talking to the media maintained that they have already suffered heavy losses during the last several years due to natural calamities and continued blockage of the Srinagar-Jammu highway and now unnecessarily stopping of fruit-laden trucks are compounding to their miseries. He said the authorities are unnecessarily stopping trucks and it seems they deliberately want the fruit growers to suffer.
