‘Return of Chembur stalls will rob us of pavements’

MUMBAI: Chembur residents, who have been able to reclaim public space after nearly 300 hawkers were evicted near the railway station, are wary of the vendors' comeback.

The state government on Thursday told Bombay high court that the sellers could return after "threat perception to the area near Chembur station eases". The state told the HC that intelligence reports indicated that a terrorist group could carry out bomb blasts. . "The police cleared the hawkers thus giving the residents an opportunity to walk on the pavements. Senior citizens were forced to walk on the road that witnesses heavy traffic," said Kishore Kulkarni, secretary of Chembur Merchants' Association, who owns a store in the area. "The hawkers have increased over the years. There were times when they usurped bus stops forcing women to stand on the road," said S Arasa owner of Hotel Rajhans at N.G. Acharya Marg.

Local corporator Suprada Phaterpekar said patrolling by cops is keeping unauthorized vendors at bay.

"It's because these hawkers were cleared off the roads that I was able to repair footpaths and cleaning the drainage lines. Certain administrative loopholes had let hawkers flourish in the area for the last several decades," said Phaterpekar.
