J&K Facing Economic Slowdown Due to Various Kind of Restrictions: Congress

Claiming Jammu and Kashmir is passing through various kinds of restrictions leading to "worst kind" of economic slowdown, the Congress on Saturday urged the Centre and local administration to consider "genuine demands" of business community.

"The failure of the Centre and state government to respond to the genuine demands of people to extend date for ITR and to defer implementation of harsh Motor Vehicles Act, and extension of GST date, has dismayed the people when they are very much hard pressed on economic front," Jammu and Kashmir Pradesh Congress Committee (JKPCC) chief spokesperson Rainvder Sharma said.

He said there seems no logic to reject the most genuine and justified demands in the wake of prevailing situation especially on the economic front and various kinds of restrictions making it difficult for the business community in particular and the common man in general to carry on their activities for survival.

"This kind of attitude of the centre government is quite unfortunate and disappointing for everyone," he said.
