Dimapur, April 17: Vegetables were finally available in Dimapur town on Friday as vendors came out in different colonies to sell whatever green vegetables they could get along with potatoes and onions.
A huge rush was seen at Khermahal-AH Road where few vegetable vendors had opened their shops on the footpath. As people came to know about the availability of vegetables, they rushed out of their homes to buy green vegetables in different colonies.
While different varieties of vegetables were sold in Nagarjan area, in other parts of Dimapur town only few items were available.
Meanwhile, DC Dimapur Anoop Khinchi has informed all concerned that in view of the sealing of Marwari Patty, Murgi Patty and GS Road as a containment measure to prevent the spread of COVID-19, the existing vegetables/fruits Wholesale Market of Murgi Patti would be shifted to Naga Shopping Arcade (Super Market) for its operation with effect from April 18 from 6 a.m. to 12 noon, mandatorily keeping social distance as per norms of COVID-19.
Allowing wholesale vegetable merchants to sell their vegetables at a designated place would ensure availability of vegetables in the town area also. (Page News Service)
