DehraDun SP bans entry of any vehicle in the Paltan Bazar area

The Paltan Bazaar appeared different with the police starting the enforcement of the ban on entry of all vehicles in the market area. Some shopkeepers protested alleging that the ban on vehicles would adversely affect their business. However, the protest did not affect the police who along with Municipal Corporation of Dehradun staff also removed the cobblers and small vendors setting shop on the roadside and the encroachment on the footpath by shopkeepers.

The Dehradun senior superintendent of police Keval Khurana has already made it clear that such stringent measures are needed to redress the traffic congestion being faced in various areas of the State capital.

Members of the business fraternity have often opposed measures taken by the authorities to resolve the problem of chronic traffic congestion on city roads.

On Tuesday the police had erected temporary barriers to close the gaps in road dividers on Saharanpur Road to tackle the traffic jam. This allowed the traffic to move ahead slowly in stead of being held at a place but the wholesalers of the Aarhat Bazaar protested against the police action.

Meanwhile, the vehicle owners employed in shops in Paltan Bazaar have been given temporary passes to park their vehicles free of charge at the MDDA parking near the Clock Tower.
