Bus failed,Trans LoC trade is dying down
11/20/2012 12:22:13 AM
Early Times Report
Jammu, Nov 19: The Trans LoC bus which was flagged off in 2005 by the Prime Minister failed to yield the desired results. This is the general feeling in the Valley. The cumbersome process for getting a berth on the bus has adversely affected its utility. Similarly the Trans LoC trade is also dying a slow but sure death.
The bus (Karvaan-e-Aman) that was launched with much fanfare to reunite the divided families of the state often plies on the Jhelum Valley Road without a single person onboard. The intended passenger has to undergo a cumbersome verification process which takes (sometimes) years together. The intended passenger has to be cleared by the intelligence sleuths at Srinagar and Muzaffarabad as well.
Yusuf Khan, who was separated from his brothers in 1947 says the bus has failed to take him across for want of clearance. Like many others he too has sought relaxation of the cumbersome process.
Similarly the Trans LoC trade, traders believe, is at the verge of death. The number of traders has reduced to 30. Initially there were around 600 traders. The general secretary of Joint Chamber of Cross Loc Trade, Hilal Turki while talking to a local newspaper on Sunday had said: "Authorities in India and Pakistan are eagerly waiting to see the across border trade dying that is why they're not serious about the bank, communication and other required facilities needed for the trade."
According to Turki the much talked about trade is on a decline. The trade was initiated in 2008 as a confidence building measure. It is on verge of closure as the number of traders has declined.
Some of the important demands of the traders including communication facilities have not been accepted for various reasons. Similarly some items have been banned. Turki has demanded immediate measures for smoothening the trade.
