Tractor, trolley operators being pushed to starvation, deserve package: Arif
9/23/2020 12:01:25 AM

Early Times Report

Jammu, Sept 22: Seeking a fair deal for the tractor and trolley operators who have been rendered jobless by the government in view of restrictions imposed on lifting of sand and gravel from river beds, Mohd Arif, President Tractor-Trolley Owners Union today urged upon the LG Manoj Sinha to provide relief package to save the poor tractor owners from starvation.
He said we have taken up the matter with concerned authorities time and again but nothing has been done in this regard so far. Anguished over the miserable plight of hundreds of tractor and trolley operators who were rendered jobless, he said poor tractor trolley operators who had obtained loans from banks are finding it impossible to pay the instalments in view of total collapse of their business in the wake the said restrictions and the ongoing Corona pandemic resulting in untold miseries for thousands of such dependent families. He called for waiving off the loans of the affected persons as a goodwill gesture in keeping with the fundamentals of a welfare state.
He divulged that while ‘grey-gold' mafia continued to fully control illegal mining in many rivers, streams and nullahs of Jammu region, several Government projects and the general public have been badly suffering as the rates of the building material like sand, gravel and stones have increased more than double in recent times. They have fixed rates of material at their sweet will. There is total chaos and the State administration has gone into deep slumber, Arif added.Arif briefed that tractor and trolley owners have become victims of starvation and their family members have been suffering badly due to failure of their business.
