Vegetable vendors wait to enter new market

But, it has no power supply, and tiles are still being laid

Vegetable vendors struggle to run their business in temporarily built sheds, fighting the scorching sun and heavy rain. The new market place or commercial complex has no electric connection. The flooring tiles of the building are still being laid. The businessmen therefore believe that it will be at least two months before that they can move to the new place.

Dilemma

There is also the dilemma about whether to rent out the complex to old vegetable vendors or to new sellers.

Sources in the Town Municipal Council say that the stalls will be rented through auction.

However, the officers in the Council have promised to give preference to current vendors.

Yet, there is still a sense of insecurity among the sellers that “nothing can be said about the matter until the stalls are actually handed over.”

Speaking with Deccan Herald, Gangadharappa, a private company employee said the old market is filled with mud during rain and walking in the area becomes next to impossible. He requested the concerned the authorities to let the vegetable vendors to set up stalls in the new complex.

“It will be so much easier even for us to visit the new vegetable stalls and purchase,” Gangadharappa added.
