Mutton dealers demand rate hike
GK NEWS NETWORK
Srinagar, Nov 12: The All Kashmir Mutton Wholesale Dealers Thursday demanded enhancement in the mutton rates, while appealing the authorities to stop practice of issuing licences for import of sheep to “ineligible” persons.
At a meeting with Manzoor A Kanoon in chair, the dealers urged the government to revise the mutton prices upwardly.
“In today’s free-trade world, the communication system has enabled people to know the changing rates every minute but here government sticks to the system which is passé,” observed the members in the meeting, in which representatives of all districts participated.
“The government should consult other Mandis of India and revise the rates forthwith,” the members said, adding that the freight and taxes imposed on the import of the mutton have increased manifold during the past few years.
The meeting said: “Lately some people who don’t qualify for licences are being allotted licences fraudulently. This practise should be stopped forthwith.”
