Traders in J-K call for shutdown demanding relief for flood victims

Srinagar, Sep 07 (ANI): Traders in Jammu and Kashmir called for shutdown across the valley on Monday demanding relief for flood victims. Accusing the state government and the Centre of failing to rehabilitate victims of the devastating floods that submerged parts of Jammu and Kashmir exactly a year ago, the Kashmir Economic Alliance, a coalition of trade bodies, has called for a complete shutdown.

The shutdown has been supported by separatist Hurriyat leaders too. After the deluge hit the Valley, the then Congress-National Conference government had sought a financial assistance of Rs 44,000 crore from the Centre for rehabilitating the victims.

The Centre, however, rejected the proposal, saying that it had been prepared without any groundwork.
