Mirwaiz Flays Repressive Measures On Highway

SRINAGAR — Hurriyat Conference (M) strongly denounced the repressive measure of preventing hundreds of vehicles including essential item laden trucks of fruits and vegetables on Srinagar-Jammu highway under the guise of convoy movement-a move that has resulted in huge loss to these traders and shortage of essentials for the masses.

In a statement, Hurriyat (M) said it is an anti people autocratic measure aimed to make the people of Kashmir struggle and beg even for items of daily need.

Hurriyat Conference (M) said, such a move will choke the economy of Kashmir and trigger crisis in the valley. Hurriyat (M) said that the indefinite strike announced by the New Kashmir Fruit Association against the move to prevent entry of trucks laden with essentials into Kashmir from April 29 is justified and the entire Kashmiri nation stands with the fruit dealers in this hour of crisis.

Hurriyat Conference (M) extends its support to their demand and asks the government to withdraw the inhuman ban on people and goods movement on the highway that is causing tremendous hardships for all segments of Kashmiri people.
