BANGALORE: Traders at the K R Market are planning to  rope in traders of other markets and stage a protest against the illegal construction of nine shops at the exit points of the K R Market. Nearly 2,040 shops will down shutters for 24 hours during the protest.

Traders, in an attempt to alert the Palike, are planning to stage the protest. They alleged that these shops have been constructed at the behest of the Standing Committee.

However, Chairman of Standing Committee (Market) Roopa Ramesh, has threatened to file a defamation case against Anil Kumar, member of K R Market Traders’ Association, for claiming her to be responsible for the illegal construction of the shops at the market.

Meanwhile, the Bruhat Bangalore Mahanagara Palike has seized the illegal shops. On the other hand, it seems like the traders at K R market are waiting for the Palike to raze down the shops, as they did in Malleswaram market recently.
