Demanding separate space in the city for rehris (carts), National Association of Street Vendors of India (NASVI) and Ludhiana Rehri Fadi Federation has submitted a proposal to Ludhiana Municipal Corporation.
"We were told to submit a proposal so that areas in the city can be marked. Ludhiana Rehri Fadi Association too coordinated with us," said Ranjit Abhigyan, programme manager, NASVI. "To avoid harassment being faced by rehris in Ludhiana, we demand separate space for them. Our proposal is ready and submitted to Ludhiana MC."
The proposal, 'Integrating Street Vendors in City Development Plan through Policy Formulation and Space Allocation', was submitted to the MC on Monday. According to the proposal, 19 such areas in zone A , 19 in zone B, 13 in zone C and 26 in zone D have been marked for this purpose.
"We are working to protect and promote the rights of street vendors. It is high time MC proved that it really cared for vendors," said Abhigyan.
The matter has been hanging fire since last MC commissioner M S Jaggi held meetings with NASVI.
