With massive eviction drives carried out Thursday and Friday to remove street vendors from various markets in the city, organisations representing street vendors, as well as Delhi Congress chief Ajay Maken, approached the Delhi High Court Friday with a plea alleging that vendors were being “thrown out” even from hawking zones, in violation of the court’s orders.
The organisations have alleged that the New Delhi Municipal Council and South Delhi Municipal Corporation have started “throwing out” people even from hawking zones such as market areas in Rajiv Chowk, Indira Chowk and Lajpat Nagar.
The pleas were listed before a bench of Justices Indira Bannerjee and V K Rao, which declined to pass an interim direction to the authorities, noting there was already an order making it clear that street vendors cannot sell wares in non-hawking zones, identified under earlier street vending schemes. The bench asked the authorities to file their reply and set the next hearing on October 19.
