Sealed shops used, AMC to take action

The Ahmedabad Municipal Corporation (AMC) has decided to lodge a police complaint against those who have opened their sealed shops without permission from the civic body. The AMC had recently sealed the shops for dumping waste in the Kharicut canal.
The shopkeepers on the other hand claimed that the AMC didn’t give them time to remove items from their shops. “When the AMC officials came here to seal our shops, there were more than 200 goats and other animals inside. We sought time to remove them which was not granted,” said Rashid Mansuri, a shopkeeper. “We requested the officials to give us 15 minutes so that the animals could be shifted to some other places but the officials didn’t relent and our shops were sealed,” he added.
According to shop-owners, they had to break the seals to feed the animals inside. “The hotel owners too faced a similar situation. We have been doing our normal business,” said Mansuri.
As the seals were broken without its permission, the civic body now plans to seal the shops again and has sought protection from Odhav police. “We have decided to lodge a police complaint in this connection,” said an AMC official.
