The November 23 fire incident in the fruit market outside the old sabzi mandi in which 29 shops were gutted is still fresh in the minds of city residents.
A reality check revealed that most of the commercial establishments in the city are not complying with fire safety measures.
Streets in the walled city are narrow and vehicles can be seen parked along the roads.
He added that after every fire incident, people demand for small fire safety vehicles that can enter these streets.
He asked them to check and ask all schools, colleges, coaching institutes, banks, hospitals, hotels, factories and other commercial establishments to make necessary fire safety arrangements.
