Srinagar: The Democratic Party Nationalist (DPN) chief Ghulam Hassan Mir on Saturday said that under the much-hyped announcement of relief to the snowfall affected orchardists of Valley is just “an eye-wash”.

Mir in a statement said that “I hope the Governor will stick to his word and will give the compensation to the affected orchardists notwithstanding the norms.”

“This is to be taken note that this is the backbone of state’s economy. It is the duty of the Govt to protect this industry. I hope the Government will rise to the occasion and will support the industry,” Mir said.
