Illegal parking removed from Central Spine: Public stopped paying the parking fee, councillor removed parking boards along with traders and residents
The public, public representatives and traders have together opened a front against the parking mafia in the city. Started from Vidyadhar's Central Spine Market. Here the local councillor Pradeep Tiwari got the boards of paid parking removed by the corporation administration.
The Corporation's Zone Deputy Commissioner and Revenue Officer stopped the councillor from doing so by calling, but the councillor clearly said that the parking mafia will not be allowed to flourish under any circumstances in front of the public and businessmen's displeasure. The councillor had promised the people of his area during the Bhaskar face-to-face program that he would get the parking closed in the next two days, but the businessmen and the public would also have to face them.
On Tuesday, Mukesh Biwal, president of Central Spine Business Council, Amit Kamdar, president of Ganpati Paradise and Pramod Sharma, president of Residence, along with the councillor, also got involved in removing the parking boards in the market.
Letter sent to CM: The traders of Parkota of Jaipur city are demanding to free the markets from parking fees until a parking policy is formulated. Traders have written a letter to Chief Minister Ashok Gehlot in this regard. In the letter written by the Jaipur Trade Federation, it has been said that the markets should be freed from parking contracts because those who have taken parking contracts from the Municipal Corporation. They have also sublet it to other people. That's why parking fee is being charged arbitrarily. The corporation is not getting any more income from this and the system has also deteriorated.
Traders have also demanded to get it to be investigated so that the reality can be revealed. Federation's president Subhash Goyal said that the municipal corporation has given the contract to the markets of the city arbitrarily. Parking fee is being charged at Johri Bazar, Chaura Rasta, and Bapu Bazar, while there is no contract for parking at Tripolia Bazar and Kishanpole and MI Road. MI Road general secretary Suresh Saini told that if the corporation administration wants, the parking contract should be handed over to the business boards only.
Corporation administration will get revenue from markets in lieu of contracts. The special thing is that in any market where parking is on the contract or not, the pressure of parking is the same. That is, no benefit of the contract is being received.
