BJP Kashmir unit on Sunday urged the district administration to allow shopkeepers and traders to operate for five days with proper SOPs instead of existing 3-day shifting schedule in a week.
Party’s Media-In-charge and senior leader Manzoor Bhat said working in shift schedule announced by administration have risked lives of both shopkeepers and common people miserable as a huge rush is being witnessed each passing day.
“Administration should extend the working schedule to 5 days during a week along with Standard Operation Procedures (SOPs) in a place,” he said.
Bhat said the administration has failed as cases are increasing each day.
“We were witnessing a heavy rush of people each day but most of the shops were closed. If these shopkeepers and traders would be allowed to operate along with SOP’s in places for 5 days, it will be a positive step,” Bhat said.
Bhat also expressed concern over the sudden increase of vendor stalls in the city.
