64

IMPHAL, January 18: The Road Side Vendors Welfare Association observed its 17th Foundation day at Gandhi Memorial Hall today.

Speaking at the function general secretary of AITUC/MSC, L Sotinkumar Singh demanded that the IMC must provide a specific place for women vendors until proper construction was made.

The State government must take up proper step for the welfare of street vendors, he said before claiming that the verdict of Supreme Court to implement welfare schemes is absent in the state.

He further said that the government must bring a conclusion to the current imbroglio of accommodating the displaced vendors of Ima Keithel.
