48 hours cease work strike by passenger Diesel Auto and Tata Magic vehicles perhaps is an opportunity for the concern government authority to check its impact to the Khwairamband Keithel as well as to the other business sectors leaving aside the traffic congestions and noise pollution issue. Well on the second day of the 48 hours cease work strike by the passenger diesel auto service and Tata Magic Vehicle, traffic police personnel seem to be relaxed this morning as they are not facing hardship in maintaining vehicular flow in a systematic way.
An independent survey conducted this morning by Imphal Times team, number of street vendors has been reduced to almost 70%. However, there is no dearth for vegetable in the market. There are adequate numbers of vendor lady seen in the Khwairamband Keithel today morning. There were less congestion in the selling site and traffic was almost free, even making ways for the city bus service introduced by the state Transport department.
Nandini , a vendor lady when talk to Imphal Times said that she didn’t have problems in her business. She sold little amount of business by buying them from the whole seller market at Nagamapal and Temporary Market set. One problem she narrated is the increase of price in the name of the ongoing cease work strike by the diesel auto.
“ We are doing well and good and the consumer are happy as they could park their small vehicles as the road is not congested’, Menaka another vendor woman said . She however expressed worried about her colleagues who used to sell vegetable along with her by coming early in the morning from far away villages like Kodompokpi , Yumnam Huidrom, Nambol, Wangoi, Patsoi etc.
What Imphal Times team found out is that only some few vendor ladies came to sell their vegetable collected from their locality, but majority who thronged in the Khwairamband keithel sold the vegetable by buying it from whole sellers. And the whole sellers don’t depend on Diesel Auto vehicles for transportation of the vegetable but rather depended to mini trucks as the quantity is large.
During the TRPC meeting held on April 25 this year, what has been discussed is to reduce the congestion in Khwairamband Keithel by conducting a survey.
When former Chief Minister Okram Ibobi came to power for the time there were talks about setting up satellite towns in the periphery of the Imphal city. This was with an idea that not only the vegetable traders but all traders of day today required commodities could gathered. Lamphel Supper market shed and the Porompat Supper Market Shed , which has been converted as JNIMS campus was the first to open. But due to reason best known both failed.
Imphal Times concern now is about the 18,000 plus diesel auto which have been in service to feed their family. As it is known from the two days independent survey conducted by Imphal Times finds that almost all people coming to Khwairamband Keithel is from far away town villages. These vendor ladies not only came to sell vegetable in the Khwauramband Keithel but also to buy vegetables from the whole sellers at Nagamapal and Temporary Market set.
If these whole seller vegetable stalls have been provided at the outskirt of the city there is a possibility that the Diesel auto would not have much problem even though they have been ban at certain area from entering the city zone.
Doing that both the diesel auto service providers as well as those buying and selling small quantity of vegetables will have no effect in continuing their business.
The two day data of what had happened to the economy of the Khwairamband market, conditions of the traffic movement will help the government in forming modalities to solve the problem of congestions and pollution.
