Drive conducted at Khwairamband Keithel

The drive was conducted after holding a general body meeting of AMMOCOC and PSVA on April 8, said AMMOCOC president SM Jalal to the media.


All Manipur Muslim Organisation Co-Ordinating Committee (AMMOCOC) and Pangal Street Vendors Association (PSVA) on Tuesday carried out a drive at Khwairamband Keithel following a complaint raised by a street vendor that one shop owner has stopped her from vending after collecting money for past seven years.

The drive was conducted after holding a general body meeting of AMMOCOC and PSVA on April 8, said AMMOCOC president SM Jalal to the media.

One Leirak, a street vendor had complained that a shop owner called Vijay, a non local at Ngari Galli near Nagamapal has been collecting Rs 200 per day from her for the past seven years, he said.

She has paid the daily sum even if she does not carry out her business by going to the market. However, she was suddenly banned from vending in front of his shop, she alleged.

Jalal said that he met Vijay and he has been told to come to the AMMOCOC office on Wednesday for further talks.

The two bodies had put up a charter of demands to the chief minister for implementation, he said.

The charter of demands include releasing a white paper for the allocation of vendor’s seat for the new Ema Keithel complex; construction of Yen Keithel (Murgi Bazar) within two months; proportionate reservation for the Pangal Street Vendors in the allocation of the new Ima market complex on the basis of the number of Pangal street vendors against the total street vendors; construction of Pangal Ima market within the zero kilometer of the Imphal City at the earliest.
