Mini Lockdown caused Shift Tension
Due to the continuous increase in the number of Corona positive cases, a mini lockdown has been imposed by the Punjab government till 15 May. Due to this, most of the unemployed people started selling fruits and vegetables.
Now, there has been a sudden increase in the crowd of buyers in Mandi. This is the reason that huge crowds of people have started to gather daily in Maqsoodan Mandi. In view of the increasing risk of infection, the district administration ordered the vegetable wholesale traders to shift backwards.
Rajkumar Arora, chairman of the market committee, states that the business will be done as per district administration directives. He said that if the traders had to shift back, they would be given extensive facilities.
