expressed strong protest over halting of
fruit laden trucks on National Highway. Restrictions over the movement of fruit laden trucks loaded from various mandis of Kashmir along the highway has led to the huge losses.
Urging the LG-led administration to allow smooth passage of fruit-laden trucks on the national highway, the concerned DDC Member said that the fruit growers have already suffered huge losses over the past several years and now they have to face more losses as fresh fruit-laden trucks are not allowed smooth passage along the Jammu-Srinagar highway.
After witnessing losses to the industry for years, orchardists had pinned high hopes following the bumper of fruits. The produce which was supposed to reach fruit mandis across the country is lying stuck on the highway without any reason.
Sweltering heat wave in the valley has destroyed truckloads of fruits, vegetables plying to and fro from Srinagar to other parts of the country.
