Indore (Madhya Pradesh): Mayor Pushyamitra Bhargav inspected Rajwada and surrounding areas and advised shopkeepers, who keep goods outside their shops on footpaths to sell them, to keep the same inside their shops failing which action will be taken by Indore Municipal Corporation.
Bhargav, who was accompanied by newly elected Indore-3 MLA Golu Shukla, said that their move of encroaching upon footpaths leads to traffic congestion in the area. “When you people put goods on footpaths, pedestrians are forced to walk on roads which results in traffic congestion.
For everybody’s convenience, keep the goods inside the shops else IMC will confiscate them and penalise also,” the mayor told shopkeepers.
Along with this, the mayor also directed the officials concerned to plan the operation of city buses in the Rajwada market area in such a manner that it does not add to traffic woes. Operation of public transport in Rajwada is necessary for common people’s convenience, he added.
