Zirakpur, May 3

Shopkeepers and local businessmen on Monday held a protest outside a multinational wholesale store on the Chandigarh-Ambala road in Zirakpur for running its operations while their "right of livelihood was being denied to them by the administration".

Shopkeepers alleged that their shops are being closed down and challans imposed on them but several wholesale stores are being allowed to run their operations.

Thirty persons working at a multinational wholesale store in Zirakpur were found Covid positive on April 30. The store was closed for two days with only home delivery available.
