SRINAGAR: With a view to take stock of situation arising out of the criminal attack in Udhampur on the Kashmir bound goods carrier and its cascading impact on the social, political and economic environment of the state, an urgent joint meeting of the Jammu Chamber of Commerce & Industry and the Kashmir Chamber of Commerce & Industry (Inc) was convened at the office of KCC&I in Srinagar on Monday. The President JCC&I Rakesh Gupta represented the Jammu Chamber of Commerce & Industry while, President KCC&I Mushtaq Ahmad Wani represented KCC&I. It was unanimously agreed in the meeting that the unabated politically motivated attacks on truckers are bound to spell doom on all walks of human life through out the state of J&K unless curbed with a heavy hand so that the disruptive elements and their activities are paralyzed forever in future which will help the people to hold the high values of peace, amity and brotherhood for which the people of J&K are known for.
After detailed discussion on the alarming situation prevailing now, the two apex business organizations of the Sate vehemently condemn the spree of attacks on innocent truckers by the politically motivated goons and the ineffective action taken by the government to curb them with a heavy hand.
In a joint statement the two Chambers appealed and demanded that the Government should immediately come in action, to trace the culprits/ disruptive elements and punish and prevent them for their nefarious activity, before it is too late.
It was also decided that both the Chambers will fight all such elements jointly who want to dilute the identity of the permanent residents of Jammu & Kashmir by debating on sections of constitution.
It was also decided that periodical meetings between the two Chambers will be held regularly in future where issues of mutual interest will be deliberated and join action taken.
