PDP demands strong action against culprits
GK NEWS NETWORK
Srinagar, Jan 31: The Peoples Democratic Party has called for strong action against the elements indulging in production of fake saffron.
In a statement a spokesman of the party said some unscrupulous people had been found producing fake and spurious saffron and selling under label ‘Kashmir.’
“This has spelt a disaster for the saffron industry and thousands of saffron growers,” it said.
The spokesman said the people of Pampore, reputed for producing world’s best saffron, have been expressing their concern and anger over this fraud but the government has not taken any visible action so far.
He said saffron provides livelihood to thousands of families in Pampore and other areas but the government has been paying no attention to the problems faced by growers.
The new threat posed by spurious saffron could serve a deadly blow to the industry unless the administration takes strong action against the culprits, he said.
