Traders have demanded the UT inspector general of police (IGP) to provide more security in market areas of the city. In a meeting with the top cop on Tuesday, a delegation of Chandigarh Beopar Mandal also asked IGP RP Upadhyaya to take steps for better traffic management.
The delegation, comprising members Charanjiv Singh, Sat Pal Gupta and many more, demanded the police to increase patrolling during closing hours. Gupta took up the issue of the worsening traffic situation in the grain market. He requested the IGP to make the road inside the grain market only open to one-way traffic.
Another member, Purshotam Mahajan, demanded increased police vigil in the city's periphery. Diwakar Sahoonja, meanwhile, handed over a newsletter that had suggestions on how to curb crime in the city to the IGP.
The IGP lauded the efforts of CBM in organising public awareness campaigns. Upadhyaya will now meet with CBM in April to discuss issues being faced by traders in detail.
