WORLD NEWS: Rawalpindi Pakistan
RAWALPINDI: The much-trumpeted model bazaar near Liaquat National Bagh, inaugurated in Ramazan last year and supposedly open to customers four days a week, has been deserted.
All stall holders, citing poor business, have packed up, official sources told The Express Tribune.
The facility, housing about 200 stalls with surrounding wall and a link road, was constructed at a cost of Rs27 million under the supervision of the Rawalpindi commissioner.
“All stalls were booked and the traders saw good business as the consumers visited bazaar in Ramazan,” said Aslam Khan, a stall holder.
Vendors were given possession of the stall free of charge in the beginning. But then the city district government started charging a daily rent of Rs125. People too stopped coming.
“Following the announcement [on the rent], about 35 stalls were left, which were also abandoned with time,” said Aslam.
