MYSORE: The busy Manandawadi Road here was blocked on Thursday for some time by vegetable vendors who demanded alternative place, preferably on Manandawadi Road, for their business.


The vendors were shifted from Nanju Malige premises (on Manandawadi Road) to Sarada Vilas College Road after Manandawadi Road was widened.


Trouble started when traffic policemen warned the vegetable vendors against occupying space on Sarada Vilas Road, which was not meant for them. The road is narrow and its occupation by vendors was causing problems to motorists and pedestrians.

Acting on complaints from residents of the area, policemen went to the spot and asked the vendors to move away.


Fearing eviction, the vendors blocked the road, disrupting traffic for some time.

The vendors have appealed to the authorities concerned to provide them space on Manandawadi Road.

Inspector Shanthamallappa pacified the vendors to withdraw their protest.
