COVID-19 forces BBMP to finally shift Kalasipalya market out of Bengaluru
| Sunday | 29th March, 2020
By Express News ServiceBENGALURU: The need to maintain physical distance appears to have spurred BBMP into permananetly closing the wholesale market in Kalasipalya and shifting it to Singena Agrahara in Anekal.
I cannot allow a wholesale market to function in the heart of the city, leading to traffic jams and chaos,” Anil Kumar told TNSE.
A decision on what is to be done with the Kalasipalya space will be taken later, but for starters, it will be immediately sanitized.
The BBMP has assured that it will provide basic infrastructure such as shelters, yards, water and a clean area in the new market.
However until the lockdown ends, BBMP will only permit small vehicles such as tempos and auto-rickshaws to transport vegetables and fruits in Bengaluru.
