Srinagar, April 19:


Reacting to the recent ban on cross LoC trade, Hurriyat (M) chairman Mirwaiz Umar Farooq on Friday said that instead of improving the cross-border relations it is being blocked and stopped.

Mirwaiz said that such measures for short term gains come at a huge price for people.

“Extremely unfortunate that GOI instead of enhancing people to people contact as families of both side of LOC stand divided & improving trade & other ties, even whatever little had been achieved since Vajpayee time is being blocked & stopped. Such measures for short term gains come at a huge price for people,” Mirwaiz tweeted.

In another tweet, Mirwaiz said today after the conclusion of Friday congregational prayers people have again conveyed a clear message of what they seek and where heir priority lies.

“At Jamia, again people have peacefully conveyed a clear message of what they seek and where their priority lies which is resolution of the lingering #KashmirConflict that has consumed generations, inflicted suffering & pain and put the whole region in peril,” Mirwaiz wrote on his official twitter handle.
