Bhubaneswar city street vendors alleged 11, 000 street vendors not enlisted to get corona support

Bhubaneswar: The Bhubaneswar Utha Dokani Byabasayee Sangha on Saturday alleged that a total of 11, 000 street vendors have not been enlisted to get corona support of Rs 3,000 from the Government.

“In 2015, the Bhubaneswar Municipal Corporation had conducted a survey and identified a total of 22,800 street vendors. Now, the process has begun to disburse the corona aid of Rs 3,000 to 11,800 street vendors only. It is a sheer betrayal to the rest 11,000 identified street vendors,” alleged Sangha president Sura Jena. Jena urged the Government and the BMC to provide corona aid to them at the earliest.
