Srinagar, Aug 2: Demanding opening of Srinagar-Muzaffarabad road for trade, the People's Democratic Party (PDP) said most of the industrial units and print media are running out of raw material and hundreds of tonnes of fresh fruit decaying on roadside because of economic blockade by Sangh Parivar.
Former minister and senior PDP leader Abdul Aziz Zargar while addressing a Public meeting at Malvan and Pahloo in south Kashmir today condemned the economic blockade by the Sangh Parivar. Mr Zargar said such acts tantamount to the division of state along regional and ethnic lines which in no circumstance was tolerable.
He said in the back drop of this alarming situation, the fruit grower's demand for an alternate route was genuine as they were suffering huge losses in wake of the economic blockade.
Mr Zargar said PDP's demand of opening of all the traditional routes connecting the valley to the outer world has been gaining momentum in the trade circles as well, as it could not be kept hostage to the devisable forces who are hell-bent to destroy the social fabric of the state.
He said the threats given to Muslims to leave Jammu and destroying their movable and immovable property was highly condemnable and the government should take immediate measures to tide over the situation.
