He said that given the massive gridlocks most of the markets inSrinagar and towns in other districts remain mostly deserted with regard to thefootfall as shoppers find it impossible to reach such marketplaces.

"The central business district of Lal Chowk remains the worsthit as the prospective shoppers are avoiding coming to the city center," Khansaid.

Khan, who also heads the Kashmir Traders and ManufacturersFederation, said that the prospective shopping ahead of the Eid was the timewhen the traders could do some business to eke out a living but that thetraffic chaos has badly affected such activities especially in the summercapital of Srinagar.
