Ghaziabad: The very promise of the State Government and Prime Minister of India Modiji’s most lucrative programme, “Swachhta Abhiyaan” and it’s outcome in form of beautification-Cum- Employment generation drive in the city of Ghaziabad has started coming.
Recently, the flower vendors who were sitting and encroached upon the footpath near Railway Station on GT Road fir last many decades were provided with beautifully built red coloured with standardises designed cabins which were allotted and facilitated by Ghaziabad Nagar Nigam to all such Flower Vendors, who were selling flowers for many decades on the foothpaths.
All the flowers vendors who were allotted flower vending shops in form of a Standardly designed “Khokhas” on the main GT Road, near Railway Station, Ghaziabad found happy and appreciating this Nagar Nigam move. The above Khokhas are beatifically coloured(red), designed and even adequate space have been left out on the footpath for pedestrians movement as well.

However, it could not be confirmed. Any how such move is likely to benefited such flower vendors as well as local people. Besides this, the city also looks nice in a progressive manner. Every one will appreciate this move, whosoever has contributed in this regard and must be appreciated.
