Srinagar, Dec 3: Traders of Downtown areas here have appealed Deputy Commissioner Srinagar to augment basic facilities.
The traders have demanded parking facilities and augmentation of garbage collection.
“Downtown is a historic place in Srinagar but sans basic facilities. We have been demanding dedicated parking facilities in Downtown areas from past several years, but no action has been taken,” said Nazir Ahmad Shah, chairman Shaher-e-Khaas Traders Coordination Committee.
The traders said they are suffering losses due to lack of parking facilities in Zaina Kadal, Maharaj Gunj and Bohri Kadal areas,”
The traders said they in association with authorities had identified a spot at Zaina Kadal for construction of parking facility. “But authorities failed to develop it into parking. In absence of parking facilities, customers and visitors face immense problems,” he said.
He said that lack of urinals in Downtown causes inconvenience to shopkeepers and customers. The traders appealed DC Srinagar to look into the matter.
