Urges Implementation of MIS scheme
Congress leader Altaf Malik has urged government to come up with comprehensive package for dying apple industry and other economic employment generate sectors like agriculture tourism, transport and artisan.
Altaf reiterated that post August 5 last year unrest, natural disasters and now lockdown not only hit the livelihood of labour class but affects these sectors which are largest economic and employment generate sectors.
"People directly or indirectly involved are hardly surviving. I urge government to promote and upgrade these sectors which are main source of income," he said.
Altaf further demands implementation of market intervention scheme crop insurance scheme which will benefit the orchardists and kissans because during current year substandard pesticides fertilizer has destroyed apple industry and maximum fruits are scabbed.
"Moreover the KCC loans taken up by the fruit growers and other loans should be waived off to mitigate the losses," he said.
