Shaheed Gunj traders protest against diversion of road

Say closure of road has affected their business badly

SRINAGAR: The Traders of Shaheed Gunj on Thursday held a protest against closing of Shaheed Gunj road by using barricades for diversion by the Traffic Police.

Shaheed Gunj Traders federation president, Raja Fida Hussian Khan said they are suffering for the ladt two years due to closure of this road. “We are already in the loss from 2014, if customers cannot walk through our market how can we proceed our daily business,” he said.

He said that this is not diversion this is simply closure of the road. “We have families to feed and our business depends on this road. How can we survive, if this road will not be opened normally. If being a shopkeeper of Srinagar is a crime, then we must be punished at once,” he said.

He also said that Basant Rath was handling all the traffic mess of the city individually, but now the Traffic police is only using barricades and closing roads—(KNO)
