Belur: In the background of thousands of tourists coming to the world famous Belur town every day, Belur chief Manjunath has warned that street vendors and push carts should carry out business transactions as per the directives of the municipality, otherwise action will be taken by the municipality.
He spoke at a meeting of street vendors and pushcart traders held at the town chief’s office. He said that the meeting was held today because the municipal chairman gave us an order in this regard. He said that there are a total of 317 street traders in Belur town. But only 117 people are getting the identity card from the municipality and getting the government facilities. Most of the street traders in the town’s Junior College Avarana put up tarpaulins and run panipuri, snacks, meals and other businesses on a daily basis, not paying attention to cleanliness and putting garbage in the attic. Also in Degula Road, Hardinkar Circle, Kempegowda Circle, Nehrunagar, JPnagar, the street vendors are not paying attention to cleanliness, they are not doing business in the place allotted by the municipality and they are doing business in the places they like and to what extent they keep the waste there at night time. In today’s meeting, the information was given in view of the report already published in the newspapers that even though a barrier has been built for the vegetable trade in the IDSMT commercial store of the town with hi-tech technology, the traders here are carrying out the trade of vegetables, fruits and other things in pushcarts on the streets.
Municipal manager Prashant said that plastic items have been banned in the town for a long time. However, most of the shops in the town are offering things made of low quality plastic. It has been seen that more and more plastic is being used, especially in streetcars and prams. They identified the shops selling plastic items and said that they would soon attack them.
On this occasion, health inspectors Jyoti and Lohit, street traders including Pushpa were present.
