“We are still hoping that the hours to remain as it was before like it was normal hours, and we are requesting the local government Minister to look into this and actually there are plenty female vendor, some of them are single mothers and they also have to rush home and look after their kids”

Prasad says over seventy vendors have submitted a signed letter to the SCC.

The Minister for Local government has directed that SCC comment on the matter.
