LoC trade gets blow
Indo Pak tension
Poonch, Jan 11: Due to the ongoing tension between India and Pakistan, the cross LoC trade between two Kashmirs remained suspended today.
Most of the trucks that had left to deliver the merchandise remained at the Trade Centre Chakan Da Bagh.
Satinder Singh, a trader at the Trade Centre said: “It’s better to go back as this tension does not look to ease in the next few days.”
The visibly upset traders at Chakan Da Bagh said that due to the tension, they have lost interest in the trade and “if things continue to go like this, the trade may die its own death.”
Pawan Anand, President Cross LoC Traders’ Association said: “The way things are going on, the future of LOC trade is bleak. India always wanted cordial relation with Pak through CBMs but response of Pakistan is not good till now.”
The authorities at the Trade Centre said that they have “cleared 25 trucks for trade with full seal but the ceasefire violations by Pak forces affected the process of trade.”
“Out of 25 trucks inside the Chakan Da Bagh, 20 have been left and those who are standing outside are not in the list,” said officials at Chakan Da Bagh.
The tension between India and Pakistan following LoC skirmishes has deepened amid both countries accusing each other of killing their soldiers and violating cease fire.
