GK NEWS NETWORK
Srinagar, Apr 24: Valley’s mutton dealers today said that they were comfortable with the present meat rates and were not demanding any hike.
In a statement here today Anjumani-I-Qurashan Kashmir, a representative body of wholesale mutton dealers, said that the mutton dealers were comfortable with the present rates. It alleged that few dealers or so-called representatives of dealers were trying to create confusion among the people and to mislead the civil administration by pressing for rate hike.
“These dealers are threatening shutdown to press for rate hike,” it alleged.“Two years ago, a team comprising government officials and members of wholesale mutton dealers’ association was sent outside the state to collect the rates of the meat.”
“Later the administration fixed the rates of the mutton in Kashmir on the basis of the report submitted by the team. But now some dealers are trying to mislead the common people and the authorities to get the rates hiked,” Manzoor Ahmad Bhawani, President Anjumani-I-Qurashan Kashmir said. He assured full cooperation to the administration to defeat the attempts of those dealers who want price hike.
Meanwhile, the association has appealed the government to complete the registration process of the dealers.
