Price rise of dry fruits occurs in Jammu as imports from Afghanistan get disrupted

Jammu, Aug 17 (ANI): With the Taliban taking over Afghanistan, imports from the country have been disrupted leading to a rise in the prices of dry fruits in Jammu. According to Jyoti Gupta, the President of the Dry Fruits Retailer Association in Jammu, imports from Afghanistan have been affected for the last 15-20 days. "It is very difficult to explain to customers the reason for the prices increasing up to Rs 250 per kilogram within 10 days. But we are helpless. To avoid any trouble with the customers, I have revised the rate list according to the situation," said Gupta. Gupta further stated that the demand for dry fruits is high in the festive season and also due to the ongoing pandemic. Earlier on Sunday, the Afghanistan government collapsed with the exit of President Ashraf Ghani from the country and the Taliban taking control over the capital city of Kabul.
