Citizens of Powai- COP is a group of Hiranandani Gardens residents. The group is fighting the irrational allocation of hawking pitches on our footpaths and roads.
COP thinks that there is perfect balance between HG and IIT market and All needs of economical goods is well provided for from IIT Market.
In thier objections to the Municipal Commissioner, they have also suggested setting up hawking markets with regularised hours, hygiene and monitoring. 3 plots which earmarked as municipal markets should be used.
Footpaths are for walkers, not hawkers. A respectful infrastructure should be created for our hawkers to earn their livelihood.
