Guwahati/ 19th April’2018 (Prag News Desk):
Guwahati Municipal Corporation officials took an eviction drive at Fancy Bazaar on Thursday morning on the footpaths of SS Road. Around 230 vendors were evicted from the footpaths by the GMC.
The GMC has declared the area as “NO VENDING ZONE”.
The GMC came early Thursday morning and started clearing the area so that the work of eviction does not become tyrannous as the day rises.
According to GMC Joint Commissioner Debo Mishra around 230 vendors have been asked to shift to the Fancy Bazar Complex of Guwahati Municipal Corporation.
Guwahati High Court had previously notified the vendors to clear off their temporary roadside marketing shafts before 31 March of this year and shift their belongings to the main fancy Bazar Complex. The whole process got delayed as the deadline crossed over.
Meanwhile, the vendors are staging strong protests after the eviction drive and are fighting for their rights.
