‘Can’t recognize vendors in other wards’

MUMBAI: ALM members, who have been accompanying civic officials on their drive to register hawkers, seem to be upset with the manner in which the survey is being conducted. Calling the campaign a "complete eyewash", the members claimed that activists from one ward were being asked to go for the survey in another locality.

Chairperson of H West Federation Anandini Thakoor said she went for the survey despite being called at a short notice. "But on reaching, I was told that I would be taken for the hawkers' registration survey in another ward and not in the area I belong too. Though I was angry about it, I still decided to go. Since it was not my ward, I could not figure out whether those vendors were the regular ones or not. After one day, I decided not to go as I felt that the entire exercise was a hogwash. Because of the way the survey is being done, the number of hawkers will increase."

Echoing her, chairperson of the 33rd Khar ALM Aftab Siddique said she was against the idea of the survey right from the beginning. "On the evening of July 17, I received a call from the BMC, asking me to accompany the officials for the survey from the next morning. There was no official letter. I was told that early on July 19, random hawkers were made to sit outside National College and made to fill forms. I tried getting in touch with the authorities but failed to get any concrete response." Anil Joseph from Perry Road ALM also pointed out that he had noticed a sudden surge in the numbers of vendors on Perry road.

But Bharati Kakkad, secretary of Union Park Residents Association, feels the census is a good idea. "It will give a clear idea about which vendors are legal," Kakkad said. "I was also asked to visit a different ward and I could not say if they were indeed the regular hawkers."
