Due to such evictions, so many women vendors having valid certificate have been  rendered jobless and are facing hardship as they have not been given re-allotments.

Maling, said that many women vendors  are the only  bread earners in the family and entire family depends on them for their  livelihood so it is important to have them relocated to designated vending zones.
She appealed to the MLA and IMC to address the  grievances of the women vendors at the earliest.
