Srinagar, Mar 6: The Federation Chamber of Industries Kashmir today raised the problems of stone crushers with minister for Irrigation and Flood Control Taj Mohui Din.
An FCIK delegation led by its vice president Javaid Ahmad Bhat met the minister at Jammu and apprised him of the problems of the stone crushers.
The Minister was apprised about the hardships being faced by the stone crushing units of the Valley due to restrictions on excavation of boulders from the nallas and river beds.
The delegation said the government has stopped the unit holders from lifting any boulders from the nallas for past one month. “The delegation assured the minister that they will fully support and cooperate with the department concerned in conservation of water bodies and will strictly adhere to the guidelines as laid down in the statute,” FCIK in a statement said.
The minister, according to the statement, assured the delegation that nobody will be harassed in case they adhere to the guidelines.
“The minister passed on the spot orders to the department that no unit holder should be stopped from lifting the boulders from the nalla manually. However no excavating machine shall be allowed to enter any river bed or nalla for this purpose,” it said.
To mention, according to the statement most of the stone crushing units in the valley were closed for last one month, particularly in Pulwama.
