DHARMAPURI: Farmers setting up stores together the roadside at the Nallampali weekly current market, which is held every single Tuesday, is disrupting traffic circulation in the place.
Nallampalli weekly market place is a single of the busiest marketplaces in Dharmapuri. On typical as several as 300 farmers from the taluk set up store right here to trade livestock, vegetables, fruits, bouquets and even treats. Regardless of creating a good market listed here, most people today set up shops alongside the Point out Highways connecting Dharmapuri and Salem producing intense targeted visitors constraints. Commuters and bus drivers mentioned that the set up of retailers on roads poses a large inconvenience.
Commenting on the subject, a TNSTC bus driver from Dharmapuri explained, “On Tuesdays, it is particularly tiresome to push in Nallampalli as it homes the weekly market. Apart from stores getting set up on the roadside, almost 50 percent the street is encroached by makeshift outlets. We urge the law enforcement to regulate targeted traffic in this article.”
M Selvaraj, a farmer from Balajangamahalli explained, ” There is enough area in entrance of the taluk and BDO place of work to property the marketplace. Having said that, most of this region is exceptionally unhygienic. So people established up stores by the roadside. We hold the markets listed here once a week and people from all about the district come listed here for trade. The poor sanitation in the area irks shopkeepers as it pushes them to move outside.”
R Kavitha, a vegetable seller mentioned, “The industry administrators are biased. They favour their very own men and women and many others are presented shops in parts where by persons seldom go to. Everybody wants to set up shop in the vicinity of the entrance of the current market to make profits. But a couple of folks takeover these spots and this leads to loss to other folks. So we stopped providing within the marketplaces and begun marketing by the roadside.”
When questioned, Agriculture department officials advised TNIE that they will glance into the concern. Police officers commenting on the targeted traffic problems claimed, “We often position staff members below to make sure absolutely free stream of website traffic. As the roads are slender, often there is a targeted visitors backlog.”
