Street Vendors leaders decries deteriorating situation on the ground
New Delhi - India: Calling the Municipal Bodies "shameless", Street Vendor leaders from all the Municipal Bodies today expressed grave concern about the continued harassment and eviction of markets in Delhi. Intensity of issuing challans and confiscation of goods has increased considerably across all the Municipal Bodies despite orders issued by the new Government. The earlier circulars issued by the Municipal Bodies do not matter to their officers. Police have also been confiscating goods notably under lost and found category. Organisations of Street vendors have to resort to going courts again and again.
It must be mentioned that in just one month of New Government coming to power, four markets have been evicted and NASVI has to struggle for restoration of each of these markets - these are a) Lajpat Nagar b) 40 Futa road c) Ranjit Nagar d) Rohini e) Vasant Kunj f) Baljit Nagar
