GK NEWS NETWORK
Srinagar, Nov 5: The Kashmir Chamber of Commerce and Industry has appealed the government to ensure safety of Kashmiri traders and their goods while they remain outside the state for business purpose.
Expressing concern over a “robbery incident in which a Kashmiri trader has recently been looted at Hoshiarpur, Punjab” the KCCI said the incident has created serious apprehensions in the traders’ community here about their safety and the safety of their goods when they are on business trips outside the state.
“The traders and handicraft exporters closely associated with the KCCI have intimated their concern to us and we feel it necessary that the government should act fast and bring the culprits to book besides taking measures for stopping recurrence of such events in future in any part of the India,” it said in a statement.
“This time around the Kashmir traders/exporters visit outside the Valley taking goods worth lakhs of rupees along for sale. Some traders go to attend the exhibitions being conducted in different parts of the country. The incident at Hoshiarpur has created serious apprehensions in them and they have felt threatened and scared about themselves and their business,” the chamber said.
“The KCCI is hopeful that the government of J&K will immediately take up the issue with government of Punjab and other states as well to ensure safety of Kashmiri traders and safety of their goods,” it said.
