Problems of robberies, loadshedding: vegetable traders threaten to close down businesses

Vegetable traders of New Sabzi Mandi on Saturday threatened to shut their businesses over persisting problems of loadshedding, dacoities and extortion if their demands would not be met by December 15. Addressing a protest rally in front of market's committee office, Chairman Karachi Vegetable Traders Association, Haji Behram, said that the vegetable market was facing several problems including damaged roads, shortage of gas, water and electricity facilities.

"Incidents of dacoity, extortion and kidnapping for ransom are common in the market." He said that they had briefed government over these issues but none of the authorities had paid attention towards facilitating the traders. He said that office-bearers of market committee demand bribe from traders in order to provide facilities to them but now we have decided to resist their illegal activities. Speaking on the occasion, the Chairman Fruit Market Abdul Razzaq said that they had contacted concerned officials of the government over the issue but all efforts had gone in vain. "We appeal the government through media to look into the matter otherwise traders will be forced to shut their businesses." Other leaders of fruit and vegetable associations also addressed the protest rally.-PR
