Vehicles laden with fruits and vegetables denied entry to Kabul

pak trucksAmid extensive security measures taken for a consultative Loya Jirga thousands of vehicles laden with fresh fruits and vegetables are stuck at Kabul gates and denied entry.

Dealers are worried about the edibles going rotten and causing them millions of dollars of losses.

According to the Afghan Chamber of Commerce and Industries (ACCI), up to 6000 vehicles carrying fruits and vegetables had been stuck outside of capital.

ACCI deputy head Khan Jan Alokozai warned that prices of fruits and vegetables might shoot up, if the situation persisted.

He called on security organs to review their decision and let the vehicles move into the city.

Meanwhile, Ministry of Interior (MoI) said vehicles were permitted to enter the city after 10pm, but they could not unload anything near the Loya Jirga venue.
