Siliguri, 8th November: The Siliguri Shudra Vyavasayi Samithi staged an agitation seeking lease or rehabilitation to traders trading on railway lands. A memorandum was also handed over to the ADRM Suman Raj by the Siliguri Shudra Vyavasayi Samithi, on Friday.
The President of the organization Parimal Mitra stated that there are about 23 markets on the railway lands in Siliguri, where thousands of traders handle their trade. He further added that the Railway management sends notices to the traders time and again and warns them to move away. If that is to happen, then the traders will face a mountain of difficulties. Hence the committee haa demanded a lease or rehabilitation to all the above-mentioned traders at the earliest.
