Shillong: The KHADC’s move to straighten the issue and practice of hawking by both local and non-tribals evokes protest and support.
Protest came from hawkers mostly local ones. Support poured in from different quarters terming the move as honest and bold. Pouring in of support could be seen in social media.
The Synjuk Seng Samla Shnong Upper Shillong zone sent a written support to the KHADC. Simultaneously it condemns the Maghalaya & Greater Shillong progressive Hawkers & Vendors Association for its protest. The Synjuk express deep pain and sorrow in the way the members of the Association mostly Khasi women who did not show care and concern over the undesired results an unregulated hawking brings.
If the women members of the Association continue in this way the youth will be compelled to come out on the streets to protest against them in this regard.
