A delegation, led by Delhi Congress president Jai Prakash Agarwal, met Municipal Commissioner KS Mehra and requested him that the Indira Gandhi vegetable market at Gokulpuri in the East Delhi should not be removed. The MCD had decided to remove this vegetable market, which was established in 1976. Agarwal said around 150 families were dependent on the vegetable market to earn their livelihood, but the MCD was trying to demolish it without giving any alternate site to the vegetable sellers at the Indira Gandhi market.
