The longstanding dispute between hawkers and residents in the old city market area has resurfaced once again. On Monday, traders and residents met with the Commissioner of Police to address the issue of hawkers blocking roads in the area, leading to severe traffic congestion.

Commissioner Manoj Lohiya directed Deputy Commissioner of Police Nitin Bagate to investigate the matter. Bagate visited the old city area to assess the situation and instructed officers to clear the roads ahead of the grand procession scheduled for Gudhi Padwa on Tuesday at 4 pm. Hawkers were instructed not to obstruct the roads with their handcarts and stalls.

A memorandum has been submitted to Police Commissioner Manoj Lohiya, urging action to resolve the situation.
