Srinagar, Dec 21: Jammu Kashmir Hoteliers Club (JKHC) and Chamber of Commerce Industry Kashmir (CCIK) have issued a joint appeal to the Lieutenant Governor of J&K to intervene in the matter of the new land lease policy announced by the administration.
Ziraat Times here reproduces the full text of the letter written by the two important business bodies of J&K:
“We J&K stakeholders (lessees)
respectfully request the Honorable Lieutenant Governor J&K to kindly intervene in the recent order of lease expiry of leased properties and pass the instructions immediately to the concerned authorities to take on board all the concerned lease based property holders to carry out negotiations with them in the matter and to explore viable options in the interest of economy as otherwise the business and economic sector across the J&K would come to a grinding halt.
Many small, medium, and large-scale business owners, shopkeepers, and other commercial institutions throughout J&K will suffer severe consequences if this direction is put into action. We request to the Honorable Lieutenant Governor to kindly consider this order’s more extensive implications. We, the J&K stakeholders, have high hopes and expections from the honorable lieutenant governor Shri Manoj Sinha Ji. We are confident that justice will be served to all J&K stakeholders as it is need of hour. otherwise, the Jammu And Kashmir UT will be more economy sufferer. Hence we all the stakeholders are son of soil please look into this matter as humanity and personally.”
