Traders down shutters to protest sealing : Gzb

Ghaziabad Development Authority sealed illegal commercial units operating out of residential areas in the township. After that traders closed shops and took the streets in Indirapuram to protect against GDA. The GDA started drive after the Federation of Apartment Owners Association of Ghaziabad alleged through a petition in the Allahabad High Court that the development authority has not been taking any effective steps to seal illegal commercial units in residential areas.
Traders began a march under the banner of Indirapuram Vyapar Mandal, in protest against sealing drive along the Kala pathar marg. They blocked traffic jams throughout the day at Mangal Bazar chowk.
The units that were sealed operated out of LIG houses in Shakti Khand 1. The sealing drive will leave many people employed and several families without any source of income. General Secretary of Traders Body Mr. Harmeet Singh Bakshi said that our protest will continue till GDA suspends the drive.
According to the GDA, roads and bylanes have been encroached upon by them. Traders have been warned that they should keep their activities within two feet from the entrance of their shops, said GDA executive engineer AK Singh.
