Protesting traders hand out roses

The Times of India (New Delhi edition) - - TIMES CITY -

New Delhi: Hun­dreds of traders from Con­fed­er­a­tion of All In­dia Traders (CAIT) as­so­ci­a­tion held a protest out­side cor­po­ra­tion head­quar­ter at Civic Cen­tre on Wed­nes­day af­ter­noon. With ‘My Valen­tineMy Shop’ ban­ners in hand and mouth cov­ered with black cloth, they dis­trib­uted roses to peo­ple pass­ing by the stretch and raised slo­gans against the on-go­ing seal­ing drive.

“The traders are dis­turbed and los­ing their pa­tience slowly as there is no re­sponse from the gov­ern­ment,” said Praveen Khan­del­wal, CAIT gen­eral sec­re­tary.

How­ever, the protest failed to get any re­ac­tion from the civic body as the of­fice was shut due to pub­lic hol­i­day. Khan­del­wal said it was un­for­tu­nate that with­out re­al­is­ing the ground re­al­i­ties, the seal­ing op­er­a­tions have been in­ten­si­fied in the city with­out even giv­ing any op­por­tu­nity to the traders.
