Alwal: Rythu Bazar in Alwal lies in pathetic condition; the market's temporary sheds might collapse any point of time. The vendors are struggling to sell their commodities under fear, as there is no proper protection from rain and sunlight. The vendors of the market for many years have been demanding to replace the ramshackle sheds with a modern concrete building and also to lay a new pathway.
- Temporary sheds may collapse any time, lament vendors
- Vendors, commodities are not protected from rain and sunlight
- Officials ignoring plea for a new concrete building
Speaking to Hans India, Sri Laxmi, supervisor of Rythu Bazar, said,"A proposal for constructing a modern Rythu Bazar building was given to the State government and also last year, former irrigation & marketing minister T Harish Rao visited the market and he had also assured of renovating the market soon, but no concrete action is taken yet."
Also, the road of the market is in very bad condition and the Road &Bridges Department has planned to widen the road beside the Bazar, but the work did not start. Also, there is no bin in the market and we have requested the concerned official to place bin over here but bin has not been placed yet.
Shanti, a vendor at the market, said, "Especially during monsoon it is becoming difficult, as water tripping from the shed and also many of us do have proper sheds. Moreover, space is insufficient and the place is dirty. As during rains condition is worst."
"As there is no proper basement in the market and no sufficient space in the market. For that reason, we are forced to sit on the roadside and also it very, risky," said Uma Devi, another vendor at the market.
"Due lack of basement, I am forced to sit down in-ground and as now its monsoon season always the lane is filled by water but what to do, without having no option I am forced to sit on wet ground and sell the vegetables," said Vijayamma, a vendor at the market.
