Biz Body Condemns Highway Blockade, Says Traders Suffering Huge Loss  

SRINAGAR — Kashmir Economic Alliance (KEA) Chairman, Haji Muhammad Yasin Khan Wednesday expressed serious concern over the highway blockade and ban that has put Kashmir to state of crisis. 

Khan who also heads the Kashmir Traders and Manufacturers Federation said, “For the last over a week, no goods including essential commodities have reached Kashmir as a result of which Kashmir is craving for life.” 

“While the highway remained blocked for many days due to faulty widening, which the government has failed to check, the two day ban has only compounded the public woes,” Khan said as per a statement. He said it was unfortunate that despite the appeals made to the Chief Secretary, the government is unwilling to bring accountability in the ongoing highway widening. 

“Not bad weather alone but more of improper widening has become a cause of the frequent blockades but government is silent on the issue was if the crises in Kashmir is not supposed to be concern,” said Khan.
