Under the leadership of Ex Councilor of Ward No. 2, Saurabh Joshi jointly with a Joint action Committee an agitation was carried against the decision of setting up a vending zone allotted just by the boundary wall of DAV School of Sector 15.

  
 
Among all those who unanimously joined their voices against the decision were president of Resident welfare Association Ravikant Sharma, President of Sector 15 Market Association Sandeep Kumar, President of Patel market Sanjeev Kumar, BJP District 1 Vice President Prof. SC Gupta, BJP Mandal President Rajesh Mahajan, General Secretary Balram Sood, BJP Samiti President Amarjit Singh, Kailash Sahni, Pritam Sharma, Sector 15 Resident and Punjab & Haryana Highcourt General Advocate Saurabh Khurana, Dr. Arvind Goel, Ex Councilor MPS Chawla and 15 A, 15 B, 15C & 15 D’s Resident & Vendors participated in the protest. 

Addressing the gathering Saurabh Joshi pointed that delegating the space for vending zone at sector 15 by vending Zone committee has many hoop holes and is erroneous in the eye of law. Also no permission has been taken from the chief architect for change of land Use to convert the present Apni Mandi Green belt into a vending Zone. 

BJP Leader Prof. SC Gupta pointed the fact that the space allotted would be to small for setting up of estimated 1800 vendors. Also the probable vending zone share a comman wall with one of the city’s oldest DAV Senior Secondary School with a strength of 1500 students. 

Also there’s a girl’s hostel near the school. Another concern is that the allotted space for vending zone is in between the residential area of sector 15 a and 15 B and also nearby is the beautiful floarence Garden. 

Another alert is the number of vendors, people and the number of vehicles that would gather at the spot when the vending zone comes in operation. Joshi’s calculation came to 1800 vendors, 5000 people and about 1000 vehicles at one time. He said, that neither there is enough space for so many people and nor there’s appropriate parking area for so many vehicles which would lead to unruly crowd, its menace and probable unlawful activities and crimes such as theft, snatching, eve teasing and so and so. 

The Ex Councilor, Saurabh joshi had already picked up the concern of increasing vendors in 2018. He had also successfully adjusted many vendors in Patel Market of Sector 15. Dhobi’s were allocated their place at the modern Dhobighat, the old book sellers were allocated proper shops for their business. Thus the sector 15 is unable to manage any more vendors, which would lead to a population explosion and its’ menace. 

The agitation was fully supported by BJP President Sanjay Tondon Via a phone call he assured the people gathered and the residents that the proposal for the vending zone would be taken back. Saurabh Joshi informed that Sh. Sanjay tondon has awared the Administration about the seriousness and severity of the matter and has asked the newly appointed Advisor to give the concerned report in two days. 

Also joined hands in the agitation were respected members of market Association Arun sood, HS Talwar, Varender Jain and JP Bansal, from old book market there were sandeep kumar, Sriniwas, Moinudin, Suresh Kumar and Rajesh Kumar, Rajan, Sanju, Virender Mahajan, Janak raj bittu from patel market were also present.
