Sopore: Scores of fruit growers on Wednesday staged a peaceful protest demonstration inside fruit mandi Sopore in north Kashmir’s Baramulla district against halting of fruit laden trucks along Srinagar- Jammu national highway.

Reports said that the fruit growers were demanding smooth transportation of fruit laden trucks along the national highway.

Talking to KNO, president Fruit Mandi Sopore, Fayaz Ahmed Malik said that they have already suffered heavy losses during the last several years due to natural calamities and continued blockade of the National Highway and now unnecessarily stopping of fruit-laden trucks is compounding their miseries.

Notably, trucks were earlier stopped in view of the Amarnath Yatra, however, following protests and several representations, LG Sinha passed directions to the concerned not to stop the fruit laden trucks along NH-44.
