Ashok Kumar, Former MLA from Ramban staged a demonstration against the Government of Jammu and Kashmir and demanded immediate justice for the vendors engaged under Municipal Council Ramban. He expressed serious concern over the inadequate behavior of Municipality Ramban towards the poor vendors in Bus stand Ramban.
In a statement issued here, ” He said that the poor vendors are paying ₹1600 per month to the MC Ramban and instead of creating re-creational or other facilities to these vendors, Municipal Council is misbehaving with them on everyday basis. It is a great injustice to the poor people”.
Ashok further said that there is non availability of water facilities in the entire bus stand. The drinking water facilities installed during the Congress government have not been repaired and no new facilities have been installed. It is a big shame for MC Ramban despite receiving revenues from the vendors no recreational facilities are arranged so far. “He added”.
Ashok has strongly urged the Director Urban Local bodies to immediately take cognizance of the matter. He also urged Director ULB to direct the concerned authorities to provide all essential recreational facilities for the vendors, drivers and people who traverse through the bus stand on everyday basis. Congress Ramban City President Pardeep Singh Raju were also present during the demonstration at bus stand Ramban.
