Karimnagar bus station turns into a temporary vegetable market
Karimnagar: Municipal corporation or Karimnagar officials have decided to convert North Telangana’s busiest bus-stand into a vegetable market. Due to the recent lockdown, Karimnagar bus-stand, one of the largest in Telanagana wore a deserted look with the suspension of bus services.
At the present market near the Venkateswara Temple, people are forced to gather at one place due to lack of sufficient place. Keeping the protocols (social distancing) of Covid-19 in mind, the authorities have decided to run the market at the bus-stand from Saturday onwards.
Mrs. Valluri Kranthi, the MCK commissioner, informed that the vegetable market will be shifted from the Venkateshwara Temple to the bus-stand premises to ensure social distancing among buyers and sellers. She requested the people to co-operate with the corporation.
Meanwhile, The BC Welfare and Civil Supplies Minister, Gangula Kamalalakar who visited the markets in the town on Thursday expressed his concern over the negligence of people to follow social distancing in the market yards. He also instructed the officials to shift vegetable markets to open places where social distancing can be practiced with ease.
