LAHORE: The Federation of Pakistan Chambers of Commerce & Industry (FPCCI) has demanded that Ministry of Railways should start a ‘Kissan Express’ for the citrus fruit (kinnow) with refrigerated bogies from Bhalwal to Karachi and Quetta on competitive rates.
This demand was made by FPCCI’s Businessmen Panel Secretary General (Federal) and former Chairman Standing Committee on Agriculture of the apex trade body, Ch Ahmad Jawad while talking to media persons here on Thursday.
Jawad said that currently the majority of private containers of the shipping companies have not given adequate refrigerated facilities to all the way to Karachi and Quetta just to save fuel and as a result fresh fruit of kinnow may not maintain quality. – TLTP
