A FIGHT FOR SURVIVAL:Pavement vendors staging

MANGALORE: The street vendors on Thursday protested near the house of Deputy Speaker of the Legislative Assembly N. Yogish Bhat demanding proper facilities in the city for their trade.

The street vendors have been fighting for their demand since May when the Mangalore City Corporation started the drive to clear them from the several streets in the city, including the streets approaching the Central Market.

Harassment

The hawkers, under the banner of the Centre for Indian Trade Union, went in a procession from the office of the Deputy Commissioner. The activists raised slogans against the government and staged a dharna near Mr. Bhat's residence.

Addressing the protesters, CITU district general secretary Vasant Achari said action of the Mangalore City Corporation to evict street vendors was another instance of harassment to people from minority community.

Sunil Kumar Bejal, who is leading the fight of the street vendors, said it was sad that Mr. Bhat had so far not reacted to the problems of street vendors.

Mr. Bhat should look at problems of Mangalore residents and not restrict himself to those from the Bharatiya Janata Party, Mr. Bejal said
