Representatives of trade, tourism and civil society here today unanimously rejected the package of Rs 2,437 crore announced by the Centre for reconstruction and rehabilitation of flood-ravaged Jammu and Kashmir, saying it is a “humiliation” for the people of the state.
“We were pursuing the package for the last 10 months and the Centre had promised us that they will prioritize addressing our concern. “However, there is nothing for us in this package. The announcement is shocking and we reject the package.
It is a humiliation for the people,” Kashmir Chamber of Commerce and Industry (KCCI) president, Ashiq Hussain Sheikh told reporters here. He said the package had left the people, especially the business fraternity, “dejected”.
