Srinagar, May 10. The recent bad weather has wreaked havoc on Kashmir’s fruit industry, causing huge losses to growers and there are reports of massive damage to horticulture from various parts of Kashmir. The timely assessment by the experts will ascertain the losses caused due to snowfall and hailstorms.
This was said by former J&K Pradesh Congress Committee Chief Ghulam Ahmad Mir on Wednesday during his tour to various parts of south Kashmir. He expressed anguish over the losses caused to fruit growers due to the untimely snow and hailstorms.
Mir in a statement said the sudden snowfall and hailstorms have been a setback to the fruit industry, which is the backbone of the Kashmir economy and needs to be bailed out by way of providing full compensation to affected fruit growers enabling them to recover the losses.
The government must depute a team of experts from SKUAST and the Horticulture Department to assess the losses and provide compensation to affected growers, at the earliest.
