Ganeshguri: Fate of small businessmen hangs in balance

Till the other day Ganeshguri area in the cuty was teeming with buyers and sellers. But its the serial blast that have turned the place into a graveyard in broad day light. The fruit and vegetable vendors remain waiting for customers. But of no avail.

This is how the small businessmen are bearing the brunt of the serial blast that rocked the state on October 30. No customer dares to rush to the shops apprehending sudden blast once again. Eerie silence prevails in the area. Talking to Assam Times, the businessmen deplored, "the customers are doubtful of the security in the area and hence they want to avoid the place and we the small traders are left affected."

One Bhaskar Das who deals in fruit in Ganeshguri rued, "security forces deployed here restrict parking of vehicles and that's why, there are low turn out of customers these days. Unless the government steps in with a positive step we will be losing concern."

Another Bikash Deka a vegetable seller said security is beefed up to avert more incidents of the kind. Security forces have intensified patrolling on the streets. Business establishments are kept opened. But there is no rush of customers. "We deserve compensation if we are to remain inside our homes," he rued.
Now its for the government to take steps to restore normalcy at the earliest to save the souls of the samll businessmen who are worried a lot.
