Vegetable vendors and Nagar Panchayat squabble over space in Gyalshing

GYALSHING, 01 Aug: While the Gyalshing Nagar Panchayat has directed vegetable sellers to vacate their stalls from the heart of the town, a group of elderly women vegetable sellers have refused to follow such directions.
The department has allotted space for the vegetable sellers at the Sabji Mandi below the main town area. However, the women who sell vegetables under an old banyan tree located in the Gyalshing bazaar contend that their present location was the best for selling vegetables and that the Sabji Mandi is too congested.
They have expressed their preference for space at the super market instead.
“We are willing to vacate our stalls if we are given some space at the super market premises. We cannot operate our stalls from the Sabji Mandi as the place is very congested,” one of the women said.
On the other hand, the Nagar Palika officials informed that the vegetable sellers have been asked to vacate their stalls as it causes traffic problems. They further added that left over, unsold or rotting vegetables that the sellers leave behind was unhygienic and a hub of disease spreading agents.
