In Indian illegally occupied Jammu and Kashmir, the Kashmir Retailers Association (KRA) on Satur-day demanded of the authorities to end weekend lockdown across the Kashmir Valley.
In a statement, the KRA President Farhan Kitab, said, the revocation of the weekend restrictions was vital to revive economic activities as normal.
“Retail businesses are under tremendous finan-cial strain due to the extended closures. The finan-cial pressures are on various fronts such as salaries, rentals, electricity charges and various taxes and license fees among others,” Kitab said. —KMS
