Shopian: Reacting to the halting of fruit-laden trucks stranded on the Srinagar-Jammu highway as the administration does not allow the movement; Mehbooba Mufti on Tuesday said that the Government of India is crushing the economy of Kashmir as Israel did with Palestinians.

The former Chief Minister of the Jammu and Kashmir said the people associated with horticulture have taken loans and when their crop, which is a backbone of the economy, is being halted like this on the highway, how growers will pay their debts then?

Mehbooba added that GoI terrorizes the Kashmiris and is hell-bent on crushing the economy of Kashmir. “It exactly does what Jews/Israel did with Palestinians in order to crush their economy,” the PDP chief said.
