Imphal, Nov. 18: “Surroundings of the Khwairambandh keithel are seen need and clean only when VVIP or VIP visit the market complex, other days the Keithel is a mess with unauthorised street vendors occupying the surrounding of the Ima Keithel building”, said a vendor lady while speaking to media persons after submitting their plea to MAHUD Minister Shyamkumar who visited  Ima Keithel here in Imphal to attend hanging of flower pots organised by Blooming Manipur.
While pleading to look into the problem faced by the licensed vendor ladies of Khwairambandh Keithel, a vendor woman said that sales of goods inside the market shed are not going well as various problems including lack of parking facilities had created incontinences to the customer by various problems.
Replying to the vendor ladies, Shyamkumar said that after the ground floor of the Khwairambandh Keithel has been converted into parking zone than customers will automatically come to the market. He said government is working hard to convert the ground floor into parking space.
Talking to reporters after MAHUD Minister left, a group of vendor ladies said that the main problem being faced by the licensed vendor ladies is the occupation of Keithel surrounding by street vendors.
“These street vendors are not managed somewhere, we from inside the Market shed will come out and start selling at the roadside’, said a vendor lady.
She also questioned the authority on how the street vendors came and occupy in and around the Khwairambandh Keithel after they have been driven out by the police.
“Are the police being bribed to enable them occupy the public space?”, asked another lady.
She said that authority like those of the IMC and the police are active only at the time when VIP or VVIP visited the Khwairambandh Keithel. The surrounding were kept clean and traffic and parking were well maintain in front of the VVIP or the VIP but the moment they left the Keithel surrounding will be again in mess.
“We appreciate the members of the Blooming Manipur for their effort in keeping the Keithel need and clean. Flowers they have planted and hang at the surrounding make this Keithel more beautiful”, vendor ladies said while adding that those in the government department responsible for keeping the market complex clean and tidy should learnt from the members of Blooming Manipur.
