Suspension of cross LOC trade direct attack on IOK economy

Srinagar, April 21, 2019 (PPI-OT): In occupied Kashmir, while condemning the India’s decision to suspend trade across the Line of Control, Jammu and Kashmir RTI Movement has termed it as a direct attack on Kashmir’s economy. JKRTI Movement in a statement issued in Srinagar, said decision of Indian Ministry of Home Affairs (MHA) to suspend cross-LoC trade clearly indicates that New Delhi is trying its best to destroy economy of Kashmir.

“On one hand, BJP government claims that it has provided more than 10 million jobs to Indian youth but in Jammu and Kashmir the jobs are being snatched from the youth especially those associated with cross LoC trade,” the statement said. “What shall these hundreds of families in Jammu and Kashmir do now? It is not only Kashmir valley which has suffered but many traders have been directly affected in Poonch and Jammu districts as well,” it added.
