PDP regrets delay in construction of Mandis in Kashmir

Excelsior Correspondent
SRINAGAR, Dec 12: Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) today expressed serious concern over the work going on at snail’s pace for the construction of fruit markets in south Kashmir’s Bijbihara, Pulwama and Shopian areas.
PDP vice president, Abdul Rehman Veeri while visiting South Kashmir’s Anantnag district and meeting various people’s delegations, was appraised about the hardships being faced by the fruit growers there due to the delay in building of fruit Mandis at Jabli Pora Bijbehara, Pulwama and Aglar in Shopian.
Veeri said that despite the proposals for the building of the fruit mandis in these areas stand approved since long, the slow pace of work is adding up worries of fruit growers at large.
He added that the south Kashmir’s economy has fruit cultivation, as its mainstay and the Government must pay heed to the hardships being faced by the orchardists due to the lack of facilities.
Veeri maintained that instead of allowing funds to get lapsed, the Administration must take serious note of snail’s pace of work going on for the construction of fruit Mandis at Jabli Pora Bijbehara, Pulwama and Aglar, Shopian so that the fruit growers heave a sigh of relief from the difficulties they face while making their produce available in the markets.
PDP leader urged upon the Governor’s Administration to take up the matter seriously and direct the concerned departments to increase the pace of work on projects at an earliest.
