Traders and shopkeepers of Lal Chowk today held an hour-long protest demonstration here demanding their immediate rehabilitation.

The protestors were demanding rehabilitation of flood hit non-insured shopkeepers and traders.

Talking to Greater Kashmir, President, Lal Chowk Traders' Association, Din Muhammad Matoo said that the government despite promises has failed to compensate the flood-hit traders of Lal Chowk.

He said the failure of the government to rehabilitate flood sufferers is taking heavy toll on their business. Later the protesters dispersed peacefully after being assured by the officials of district administration.
