JK’s economy being strangulated: Hurriyat (G)
Srinagar: Alleging that the economy of the region is being strangulated, Hurriyat Conference (G) spokesperson Tuesday said that blockade of trucks loaded with fresh fruits, vegetables, live stock and other necessary edibles has rendered the wide section of business fraternity bankrupt and jobless.
“Heavy financial losses and a wide range of debt trap are being deliberately knit to destroy the economy of Jammu and Kashmir,” the spokesman of the organization said.
Displaying its solidarity with the fruit growers association at Parimpora Srinagar, a high level delegation of Hurriyat Conference on the direction of its chairman Syed Ali Geelani visited Fruit Mandi Parimpore, the spokesman said.
Taking a dig on the administration, the delegation also expressed its solidarity with the contractors union who have been marginalized and ignored in all the state constructional activities as compared to the nonresident contractors of the state.
Hurriyat (G) delegation described the policy of exploiting the economic interests of the state as ‘authored by planners from outside’ to push the state’s economy in a vicious circle of poverty.
The delegation appreciated the business and labour classes of the state for its hard work, zeal and zest and managerial skills to keep up its pace of growth through all odds and blockades put forward by the authorities since long.
