Fruit growers hold protest demonstration



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 con-tinued blockage of the Srinagar-Jammu highway and now unnecessarily stopping of fruit-laden trucks are compounding to their miseries. He said the authori-ties are unnecessarily stopping trucks and it seems they deliberately want the fruit growers to suffer.—KMS
