Chairman, Kashmir Fruit Valley Growers cum Dealers Union, Bashir Ahmad Basheer said that “In order to ensure that fruit-laden trucks operate smoothly, particularly at Banihal and Qazigund, a group of 25 growers from all districts of the Valley, travelled to Ramban. On the specified date, 20.9.2022, there was a downhill convey, but it was personally observed that the traffic personnel also permitted upward traffic, causing severe congestion that left thousands of fruit-laden trucks stuck and allowed the upper convey to proceed without any problems.”

“It is unclear why uphill traffic is travelling on the Srinagar-Jammu national highway as and when downhill traffic is permitted according to the schedule. This needs to be taken seriously because it is the only thing that is generating the severe traffic jams that are leading traffic officials to stop fruit-filled trucks for days on end.”
