Srinagar, November 20 (KMS): In occupied Kashmir, rejecting the puppet regime’s order for closure of shops in Srinagar on Fridays, the Sheher-e-Khaas Coordination Committee (SKCC) has said that the traders won’t obey the order and the authorities should choose a day other than Friday for the weekly off.

SKCC President, Bashir Ahmad Kenu, called the order a pre-planned conspiracy to crush business community of Old City.

He said the puppet regime is trying hard to crush the people of downtown for reasons known to everybody. “Now, they are planning to weaken our economic condition and make us dependent on others. Friday is a prime, rather the only business day for us. The dictate of closure won’t be accepted at any cost,” Kenu said.

The SKCC comprises traders of 123 markets who own or run more than 10,000 shops and other outlets in old city areas that are called Sheher-e-Khaas. Kenu said that more than 20,000 people are directly associated with businesses operating from these markets.
