GTA Chief condemn TMC over hawkers’ market at CR Das road
Darjeeling, 25 July: The supremo of the Gorkha Jan Mukti Morcha Mr Bimal Gurung who is also the chief of the Gorkhaland Territorial Administration today vehemently condemned the Trinamul Congress and the district administration bid to construct hawkers market at CR Das road or below Mall road, asserting: "It will not solve the hawkers plight and moreover it will obstruct the heritage beauty."
He reiterated that the GTA has already given one crore to the Darjeeling Municipality to chalk out provision to relocate 300 hawkers which according to his direction will be established at Yen Singh road near the taxi stand of Darjeeling.
The civic chairman Mr Amar Singh Rai added, "The plans are already being chalked out without breaking any rule of the book."
Notably, the proposed hawkers market at CR Das road will relocate only 42 hawkers, according to the building plan submitted by the district administration to the municipality for the nod.
However, the TMC-backed Astha Hawkers Welfare Association for whom the construction is being done has a strength of 247 members. Presently the hawkers are at the Mall road.
"We will not let this happen," Mr Bimal Gurung today said when asked about his stance over the construction. ( sns)
