Srinagar, Nov 6: Senior Congress leader and former Union Minister Prof. Saifuddin Soz Tuesday welcomed the statement by Satya Pal Malik that the survey of losses suffered by Horticulturists due to recent snowfall was afoot and soon, relief would be offered to the sufferers.
“The information regarding heavy losses suffered by Horticulturists in the J&K State, particularly in far flung areas, has started trickling in. Certain quarters have assessed a loss of Rupees one thousand crores by the Horticulturists as a wide variety of fruit was either on the ground or on the trees and the same was damaged.”
“I hope that the Governor will ensure that the necessary relief is not only sanctioned in time, but disbursement will also be made well in time, as per the commitment of the Governor,” Soz said.
