‘Unwanted curfews’ irk Shaher-e-Khaas traders

SAY BUSINESS BADLY AFFECTED, SEEK SAGAR’S INTERVENTION

SYED IMRAN ALI HAMDANI

Srinagar, Dec 3: The traders of old City, the Shaher-e-Khaas are up in arms against the government for “imposing unwanted curfews in the area” for the past few days adding that the business has been badly affected.
 The Kashmir Traders Federation Shaher-e-Khaas Zaina Kadal and the Jamia Market Traders Federation–two prominent trade bodies in the old City have expressed serious concern over the “continued curfews.”

JAMIA TRADERS CONCERNED
 The traders of historic Jamia Market said the congested area has been under curfew for the forth day in a week. “If there was some problem in Hawal area why has our locality been kept hostage?” asked a group of Jamia Market traders adding that there was no need to impose curfew.
 “It seems that the government does not want us to do business peacefully. Otherwise why should there have been curfew,” the traders said.
 The businessmen said frequent curfews had been detrimental for the area trade in the past as well. “Because of such excesses our business gets badly affected and it takes months to resume        normal business.”
 The old City traders said the government was resorting to discrimination with the Shaher-e-Khaas. “When civil lines was kept open for all these days why is Nowhatta and its neighbourhood being put to unwanted curfews,” the traders said.
 Jamia Market Traders Federation President Javed Ahmed Zargar endorsed the views of his colleagues. “We fail to understand when even allegedly volatile pockets are calm over reports of group clashes why has been our area been under curfew,” Zargar said adding that the business fraternity has suffered heavy financial losses.

ZAINA KADAL TRADERS
 The Traders Federation Shaher-e-Khaas Zaina Kadal accused the government of being selfish. “Imposing curfew could be easy for government. But we cannot bear it because we have to pay back loans and no bank will buy the curfew plea. Besides we have to pay salaries to salesmen,” said the trader’s federation president Nazir Ahmed Shah said.
 Shah said the traders body during a meeting attended by General Secretary, Omar Gani, Abdul Hamid Buch, Nisar Zargar and others resolved that imposition of curfew was unwanted.
 “There was no trouble in Zaina Kadal. Why our market being kept closed?” the traders said adding “keeping shops closed isn’t a small issue because we have to pay salaries to two to four salesman as well.” “Wherefrom will we manage the expenditures?” the traders asked.
 The Zaina Kadal traders appealed the Cabinet Minister and MLA Khanyar Ali Muhammad Sagar to look into the matter.
