Bosky Khanna ByExpress News ServiceBENGALURU: With the lockdown leading to a severe shortage of vegetables and a rise in prices of essential supplies, the authorities on Friday decided to open wholesale markets across Karnataka, from Saturday.
According to BBMP Commissioner BH Anil Kumar, in Bengaluru, only the Yeshwanthpur and Kalasipalya wholesale markets will be opened, but with regulations.
Large retail markets will remain closed, though a part of KR Market’s operations will be shifted to National College Grounds in Basavanagudi.
The wholesale markets will be open only for a while to allow retailers to stock up, health department officials said.
BBMP authorities started the process of shifting facilities, creating one-metre distance markings and erecting tents in National College Grounds, Sarakki grounds, two grounds in Pulakeshi Nagar and Swami Vivekananda Grounds.
