Dimapur, July 3: The Dimapur Chamber of Commerce & Industry (DCCI) has again appealed to the Dimapur district administration to take immediate steps for reopening of Hong Kong Market, New Market, Millennium Building Market and Hazi Park Market.
In a press release, DCCI president Akashe K Zhimomi and convener, Public Grievances Cell, Omega Yepthomi stated that the opening of the above four major markets was discussed and mutually agreed upon during the last meeting of Dimapur District Task Force. Accordingly, they said the business community of the four markets had already sanitized and disinfected these areas.
“Now it is exactly 110 days since these markets have remained closed due to the lockdown and in the meantime the business community of these markets are undergoing untold sufferings and immense economic hardships,” it said.
Asking the district administration to look into the genuine plight of the business community of these markets and issue notice for immediate reopening of the markets, the DCCI also asked the district administration to extend relief measures and assistance to mitigate the suffering of the affected business community.
Further, DCCI appealed to both the Dimapur Municipal Council and private building owners to exempt or waive off rent of commercial buildings and rooms on humanitarian grounds. (Page News Service)
