Sopore: Just a week after the administration provided an alternate space to the street vendors who were banned by the authorities to work on main roads in north Kashmir’s Sopore town, the vendors staged a protest demanding better place to carry out their trade.
The vendors who held protests were chanting slogans against the government and were demanding to be allowed back to stands so that they could carry out their trade.
The street vendors said that an alternate place provided by the administration is not suitable for them to carry out their trade.
They said that at least 20 days passed since their work was banned in commercial areas of town due to which the authorities have left them on God’s mercy.
“We should be given any suitable alternate or should be allowed to work on our previous place as from past several days they are facing tremendous hardships,” Shams-u-din, a protesting street vendor said.
The street vendors later appealed the LG Manoj Sinha and district administration to look into their sufferings and redress their genuine demands.
