ISLAMABAD: Peaceful and congenial atmosphere is a must for carrying out smooth business activities that not only help people earn their livelihood but also generate employment opportunities for middle and lower classes of society.
Due to the sit-ins and marches by the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) and Pakistan Awami Tehreek (PAT) in the federal capital, the businesses of common earners has been effected badly.
The stall holders of G-6 weekly bazaars have shown serious concern over these sit-ins as such activities have adversely affected their businesses.
The stall holders said that since the start of long marches and sit-ins, Islamabad’s traders have been confined to their homes, due to which they are suffering huge losses.
Mulazim Hussain, 58, a stall holder at the Sunday Bazaar told APP that the business activities, especially in Aabpara market and Sunday bazaars, have come to a complete halt, due to the marches and sit-ins.
Most of the vendors in the Sunday Bazaars are also facing hardships due to the political temperature in the capital city.
They are expecting that the sit-ins would come to a peaceful end soon that would restore business activities and help lower class to earn livelihood for their families.
The stall holders have appealed to district administration to allot a separate space for protests and not to allow such activities at the business centers.
