Mangalore Today News Network

Mangaluru, June 09, 2020:  Following  yesterday’s announcement by the  Central Market Merchants Association that they would  be shifting back to the Central Market on June 9, Tuesday from the APMC yard at Baikampady where they had moved during the lockdown in April,  the City Corporation has today ensured that all  entrances leading towards the Central Market are blocked with barricades. Police are also heavily guarding the area in order to prevent the traders from shifting back to the Central Market.

The Association which had convened a press meet on Monday had announced that  the traders would shift back to the Central Market as lockdown rules have been relaxed. It may be  mentioned here that the vendors had to inevitably shift to the APMC yard at Baikampady in April following an order to that effect by the MCC which had argued that social distancing was not possible in the old market building. The MCC also has plans to demolish the building to facilitate construction of a new market complex.

However, the vendors who had shifted to the APMC yard  were in for trouble as the yard lacked basic amenities. They had also suffered losses after fruits and vegetables perished during the recent rains.

If the Association’s legal advisor Manmohan Jois argues that   the High Court has stayed the shifting of traders to the APMC yard and demolition of the  Central Market Building, the  MCC authorities say otherwise and add shifting back to the Central Market will be against the  rule.
