Stating that closure of the second gate in Uzhavar Shandy on Park Road is posing hardship to them in transporting vegetables, farmers demanded that it should be reopened.
The shandy is located in the heart of the town with the main gate located along Anjaneyar Temple Road and the small gate along Park Road. The presence of unauthorised shops on Park Road disrupts traffic every day as efforts by officials to relocate them failed.
Farmers who come to the shandy park their vehicles in the rear side and carry the vegetables to the shandy through the second gate. But, since the second gate is opened, unauthorised shops mushroomed on the road causing congestion. Hence, the gate was closed recently.
