Court Road Shopkeepers Protest, Allege Harassment by Traffic Dept
“If things went on like this, we will continue our protests.”
SRINAGAR — The shopkeepers of Court Road on Monday staged a protest against the traffic department, alleging harassment and unnecessary fine to their customers.
General Secretary Lal Chowk Shopkeepers Association, Sheikh Tasaduq said, “Whenever we open our shops in the morning, the traffic police start fining the customers for parking their vehicles outside their shops.”
He said that as a result of the challans, the customers don’t stop outside their shops for shopping now. He added, “If things went on like this, we will continue our protests.”
“We had spoken with SP Traffic regarding this but there has been no solution to redressal to our grievances,” the protesters said and appealed to the traffic department and concerned authorities to allow the customers to park their vehicles for some minutes at least so that their business is not affected.
