Budhiraja forex chandigarh administration
SHOPKEEPERS AND traders on Saturday downed shutters from morning till 1 pm in protest against the demarcation of space for allotment to 285 vendors at the Sector 19 market. The market budhiraja forex chandigarh administration has even threatened to go on an indefinite hunger strike if the decision to allot space to street vendors was not rolled back by Monday. Last year, Municipal Corporation officials had refused to allow vendors in sectors 17, 19 and 22 and declared the sectors to be no-vending zones due to lack of space. But after revaluating the decision recently, space was allotted to street vendors.
This is why shop owners of Sector 22 took out a protest march against the decision. We are already struggling and have been victims of the street vendors’ nuisance outside our shops for years. The hooliganism not only hampers and affects our business, but has also created huge parking issues at the market. We have raised our grievances with Municipal Commissioner Jitender Yadav and Chief Architect Kapil Setia but there seems to be no progress in the matter.
We also took the matter to SSP Chandigarh Nilambri Vijay Jagdale and she agreed that maintaining law and order in such a cramped market would be an issue. She also assured us of preparing a detailed factual report following the order will be prepared. The demarcation of spaces for vendors in Sector 19 is in the initial stage. The members of the Sector 19C market committee met me twice. Some of the concerns like congested space in the market, especially in Sector 19C, are genuine.
