Srinagar: Kashmir Valley Fruit Growers Cum Dealers Union and the New Kashmir Fruit Association have written a letter to chief minister of Delhi, Arvind Kejriwal, requesting him to restrict entry and sale of imported apples from Iran, Afghanistan and other countries at New Fruit Mandi Phase I & II, which, according to Kashmir fruit growers, have started to cause huge losses to the apple growers of the country.

Ziraat Times here reproduces the complete text of the letter, as received:

Hon’ble Sir,

With great respects and humble submission, your goodself is informed that imported apples from Iran arrives in our country via Afghanistan. These apples are unauthorizedly and illegally auctioned at the sheds of New Sabzi Mandi Azadpur Delhi, causing not only inconvenience but regular traffic jamming as well in and outside the market with the apprehension of any incident at any moment.

The illegal sale of proxy/ imported apples in New Fruit Market Delhi badly hamper the trade of apples produced and transported from Kashmir valley and from other parts of the country, causing heavy losses to fruit grower and dealers. The illegal sale of proxy fruits in APMC Mandis of the country are not allowed under the provisions of law. Imposition of ban to restrict entry and sale of proxy fruits (imported apple from Iran) and sale thereof is, therefore, very necessary. The imposition of ban on entry of imported apples from Iran via Afghanistan and sale thereof at New Sabzi Mandi Azadpur Delhi will be fruitful and beneficial for the fruit growers of our country.

Under the circumstances explained above, your good self is accordingly requested to kindly look into the matter personally and direct all concerned authorities for immediately banning of entry of imported apple of Iran via Afghanistan in our country and its proxy sale at New Fruit Market Sabzi Mandi Azadpur, Delhi so that the fruit grower of our own country may not face losses.

With great regards,
Bashir Ahmad Basheer
Chairman – Kashmir Valley Fruit Growers Cum Dealers Union
President – The New Kashmir Fruit Association
