Lakhanpur toll plaza, the gateway to J&K victimizing traders: KEA

Srinagar: Kashmir Economic Alliance (KEA) Chairman Haji Mohammad Yasin Khan on Saturday accused the government of victimizing traders in the grab of Lakhanpur entry post.
In a statement issued here on Saturday, Khan who is also the President of Kashmir Traders and Manufacturers Federation (KTMF) said the DC Sales Tax has been deliberately seizing good laden trucks headed for Kashmir to “further crumble the economy of Kashmir which is already struggling, “The trucks are being kept unduly seized and checked for weeks, these Babus are calling the shots, and this is a bid to frustrate traders so that they give up trade,” Khan said.
He said the state government was directly responsible for this mess. “Time and again we have been telling the government to end two entry system for Kashmir. After Lakhanpur, State traders are subjected to entry red-tapism at Lakhanpur. Why two troubles for Kashmir?” Khan asked.
