KCC&I decry delay in implementing Crop Insurance Scheme, ‘could have proved critical at this juncture’

Srinagar: Delay in implementation of Crop Insurance Schemes has ensured that farmers and orchardists are deprived of any sort of insurance cover which could have proved to be of critical importance at this juncture, The Kashmir Chamber of Commerce and Industry said on Monday.  

“This would have saved crores in T&D Losses and would have ensured hassle free power supply in the winter months, but the Power Development Department instead chose to waste thousands of crores in laying of covered cables on transmission poles. The results are out and it’s time that some accountability was sought,” they said.

The alleged that the State Administration seems to enjoy digging wells at the time of fire and indulge in cosmetic firefighting exercises without taking any long term corrective measures for addressing core infrastructural issues.

“Year after year we have to issue the same press statements as the population continues to suffer losses,” they claimed.

“Preliminary reports received from various Fruit Associations including Anantnag suggest that losses upwards of Rs. 500/- crores have been incurred and irreparable damage caused to trees, plantations and orchards. We appeal to the whole community to stand behind our brothers in distress and extend support in whatever manner possible,” KCCI said.

According to the statement  KCC&I said that they have been demanding laying of underground cables for power transmission since years now.
