Days after the state administration provided an alternate space to the street vendors who were banned by the authorities to work in city centre Lal Chowk, Monday in a scorching heat staged a day long sit-in at Jahangir Chowk.The vendors were chanting slogans against the government and were demanding to provide a suitable place to them.The street vendors told KNS that an alternate place provided b the administration is not suitable. “The government has said that they have provided the space to at least 500 vendors but unfortunately only 300 beds would be adjusted at the space,” Ishfaq Ahmad Teli, a street vendor told KNS.He said that at least 20 days passed since their work was banned in commercial hub Lal Chowk 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,” he said.Ishfaq told KNS that the government should come up with the decision at earliest, which will accommodate the aspirations of hundreds of street vendors who became unemployed due to authorities action.The street vendors later appealed Chief Minister, Mehbooba Mufti to look into their sufferings and redress their genuine demands of vendors.
