SMC cracks down on street vendors in Jahangir Chowk

June 13, 2024 | BK News Service

The Srinagar Municipal Corporation (SMC) conducted an operation to remove street vendors from Jahangir Chowk and Hari Singh High Street.

This drive aimed to decongest traffic flow and improve pedestrian movement in these busy areas.

However, the operation has sparked concerns about the livelihoods of these vendors.

Street vendors play a vital role in the city's economy, and many argue that the SMC should provide designated vending zones before evicting them.

Some reports suggest that the SMC lacks a sufficient number of designated vending zones to accommodate all displaced vendors.

This has led to tensions between the vendors and the authorities.

Hopefully, a solution can be found that balances the needs of both the vendors and the city's traffic management.
