SRINAGAR: Traders and transporters, under the banner of All Traders Joint Coordination Committee (ATJCC), on Saturday held a peaceful against the shifting of Bus Stand from Batamaloo to Parimpora.
“A large number of people including mechanical workers, labourers and traders are associated with this bus stand, and if it is shifted the move will render them jobless besides near about 5000 shopkeepers will get affected due to it,” ATJCC president Mohammad Ashraf said while also making a request to high court to revert its decision,.
“If government goes ahead with the decision, then the business community will have no option other than to launch stir,” the protesters said.
They said that it is a historical bus stand that needs to be preserved, maintained and not shifted. “We have full faith in judiciary and we hope it will give us breather,” they said.
