Kulgam: Engineer Rasheed led Awami Itihaad Party Friday demanded a blanket ban on Khyber Dairy products. The party workers who staged a protest here in Press Enclave Srinagar alleged that Khyber Company that has been convicted by the court for mixing detergent powder to the milk is the source of cancer disease in the Kashmir.
The protesters carrying placards and banners seeking life time ban on Khyber Dairy products said that it is not the first time when the samples of the Dairy products of the Khyber Company were put in question but earlier as well these products had been declared unsafe for the consumption.
We demand stern action against those officials who used to clear these products. The government wants to save those corrupt officials and mere attaching them will not do the job. Even Court has declared a Food Safety official corrupt and incapable, they said.
