SRINAGAR: President of Democratic Party Nationalist Ghulam Hassan Mir has expressed concern over the damage caused to the orchards due to unexpected snowfall in the valley.
Mir in a statement said that damage is colossal. “On one hand, damage has been caused to the fruit bearing trees, and, on the other side, the plucked fruits too have got damaged in the orchards,” he said.
The growers have also suffered because of closure of roads to make their produce reach the markets on time.
Mir urged the government to assess the losses occurred to the growers and consider the compensation to the affected.
