Jammu and Kashmir traders cancel Pakistani Kashmir visitDecember 11th, 2008 - 4:02 pm ICT by IANS
Jammu, Dec 11 (IANS) A traders’ delegation from Jammu and Kashmir has cancelled its visit to Pakistan-administered Kashmir, scheduled for Dec 15, in the wake of the Mumbai terrorist attacks.Jammu Chamber of Commerce and Industry president Ram Sahai, who was to lead the delegation, said he and his fellow traders had cancelled their plans.
“We were told by our hosts that the timings were not feasible and we also realised that our visit at this time, when terror has revisited India in a big way, is not a good idea,” Sahai told IANS here Thursday.
The traders were to pay a visit to Pakistan-administered Kashmir in response to a visit by traders from across the Line of Control in early October, ahead of the start of the cross-LoC trade Oct 20.
