Karan Gilhotra, chairman, PHD Chamber of Commerce and Industry, Punjab Chapter, said here today that the industry in the state was suffering due to the agitation of farmers.

He said the industry was on the path of revival in the state after the lockdown due to Covid-19, but the present farmers' stir resulted in rail blockade and the functioning of the industry in the state had been adversely affected.

He has urged the government to resolve the issue of the farmers who have also been facing tough time and save the industry from huge losses.

He said due to the non-movement of containers and rail goods traffic, the supply chain of raw material and finished goods had been restricted since the last one month. Power plants were facing a shortage of coal forcing them to impose power cuts on industry. He said as a result of the grim situation, the price of raw materials had increased manifold.
