Bantwal: Street vendors at Farangipet oppose eviction by railway department


Daijiworld Media Network - Mangaluru (ANK)

Bantwal, Dec 13: Street vendors at Farangipet opposed the railway officials, who arrived to evict the shops located at the road side of Farangipet Junction here on Thursday, December 13.

Several street vendors are running their business of fruits, vegetables, fish and chicken in this area. But the land belongs to the railway department. Railway department had issued notices to the street vendors and gave one week time to vacate the place.



Even after one week, the street vendors did not clear the place. On the morning of Thursday, the Railway department officials arrived at the spot and started forcibly evicting the shopkeepers with the help of policemen.

Agitated at the move of the railway officials, the street vendors and gram panchayat president Ramlan refused to evict the shops, which created a lot of tension at the spot. Due to confusion, Railway officials gave one more hour's time for the street vendors to vacate the shops on their own. Few of them vacated the place while the rest continued their opposition and began to do business besides the road.

Bantwal rural police arrived at the spot and tightened the security.

    Encroachment of Government land is a crime, be he who he does.
    In city, dwelling permission are denied or residential building are razed for simple fault by inches in setback where encroachment of government land is not involved.
    Why the gram panchayath is involved in protecting the encroachers and taking the responsibility in relocating them?
    It is surprising that the Panchayath president has taken side with encroachers and has failed to discharge his constitutional duties..
    Since railways has completed due process for eviction, district administration should extend full support within constitutional framework to complete the eviction process and send a strong message to criminals on zero-tolerance to encroachment and equal opportunity to society.

    Do the street vendors have any licence to do their business there ?When not, it is natural they have to vavate or bear the consequenses.One cant do a business in someones property without licence.so simple is it.when railway asks to vacate with a notice have to follow.need not resist.They had given notice.Try to ask elsewhere to continue that.

    Development will not come all of sudden from sky,people need to support elected govt.
    Accordingly they can request for a railway station,and accordingly install their grocery shops there.

    Every where the target is street vendors. Nobody is bothered or have guts to vacate shops which is built in Parking places every where. Modiji is helping big Gujarati business persons. And here administration is troubling poor street vendors..

    IF IT WAS GOOD GOVERNANCE BY MODI............... THE EVICTION FOR CENTRAL RAILWAY WOULD HAVE DONE BY PROVIDING ALTERNATE SHELTOR FOR THESE VENDORS.

    NOT THE SAME WAY HE DID DEMONETIZATION

    REAL EVICTION SHOULD START FROM "ANTILIA"
