Take closure orders back: Shopkeepers

Sangrur, May 3

Shopkeepers protested the Punjab Government’s order to close their shops and announced to intensify their agitation. “We are already under huge debt while the latest order to close our shops, would cause more losses. The Punjab Government should allow us to open our shops at least during daytime,” said Babbu, a local shopkeeper.

Shopkeepers converged on the main market of Sangrur and demanded the withdrawal of the latest decision.

We are incurring huge losses for over past one year as our shops remained close. We are paying rents and salaries of our employees. The government should allow the opening of shops from 9 am to 5 pm. We would announce our future course of action after a meeting,” said Sarjiwan Jindal, a BJP leader and local shopkeeper. — TNS
