Early Times Report

Jammu, Sept 7: Member of Traders Federation has appealed government to provide financial assistance to Jammu traders to save them from acute financial crisis.
In a meeting of Traders Federation Ware House Nehru Market, held under the chairmanship Deepak Gupta, General Secretary in the presence of Dheeraj Gupta, Sr. Vice President, Munish Mahajan Vice President, Abhimanyu Gupta Secretary and other members discussed the prevailing situation.
The members raised the issue that due to stoppage of communications, the business sector supplying the good to Kashmir valley is suffering very badly as the traders have no contact with the buyers from Kashmir valley resulting payments of Crores of Rupees held up for the supplies made in the month of July and August 2019.
Deepak Gupta said that traders of Ware House-Nehru Market have been doing business with Kashmir Valley and other districts of Jammu division since 1952. Gupta said that the business of Kashmir and Jammu depends on each other and both of them can't survive without each other. Whenever there was a crisis in Kashmir, the traders of Jammu fully supported, they said.
Gupta said that with the removal of Articles 370 and 35A, the government imposed restrictions in the districts of Rajouri, Poonch, Doda, Kishtwar and Bhaderwah besides the Kashmir valley, but despite all difficulties, Jammu Traders continues the supply of ration and other food items in these areas so that there is no shortage of any kind in any area.
For the last one month, they have not received any payment, which has put an economic burden on them. Traders of Jammu have been unable to pay the companies.
In such a situation, the government should come forward to help the traders of Jammu, Gupta added. Gupta said that the traders of Jammu have always supported the government and whenever there was a crises, walked shoulder to shoulder with the government.
Now it is also the duty of the government to cooperate in releasing payments from Kashmir and other districts and till the internet services are fully restored in the state, the interest on Bank loans should be waived off so that they can get some relief.
Apart from this, Deepak Gupta also demanded the withdrawal of the duty imposed on shopkeepers by Jammu Municipal Corporation. Gupta said that traders in Jammu are already going through a difficult phase and this order added problems for traders. Hence it should be withdrawn immediately.
Atul Khanna, President Kashmir Traders Association, Goutam Malhotra, Deepak Kumar, Chaman Lal Kath, Yashpal Gupta, Ashwani Sharma, Pawan Jit Sharma, Sham Lal Gupta, Sham Langer, Ram Langer, Greesh Bajaj beside others were present during the meeting.
