Chandigarh Territorial Congress Committee (CTCC) chief Pardeep Chhabra on Wednesday took up various issues of the Sector-17 shopkeepers before the municipal corporation (MC) officials.
The shopkeepers apprised Chhabra about their problems, including overcharging by the parking contractors, and seeking more money for monthly passes at the Sector-17 plaza.
"The parking contractors were not adhering to the terms and conditions,"they alleged.
Talking about the civic problems, the shopkeepers said garbage from the dustbins in the shopping plaza was not being picked up regularly.
They urged the MC to rent out around 40 shops being built under the newly constructed overbridge at the earliest.
