The Guwahati Municipal Corporation (GMC) has expressed that plans of transforming various parts of the city into hubs for commerce and street food. A lane in Ambari has been chosen for such a purpose.
Speaking to the media, GMC Commissioner Devashish Sharma informed that the Aziz Path at Ambari, which lies opposite to TC Government Girls' High School, and adjacent to the Sahityarathi Lakhminath Bezborua Chowk has been identified as the designated spot for selling street food.
He said, "It's cleared by the Police and you should see the work happening in the next 2 or 3 months."
He added that the inspiration behind such an idea was from the many street food hubs in India which would function as a regular commercial space during the day but turn into a "bustling" street food hub in the evening.
He stated, "Once things get to normal and COVID-19 protocols are over, people would want to visit, eat and have fun. We have identified a street that can be turned into an eatery street."
The GMC Commissioner also added that the primary focus is to relocate the street vendors to a designated spot so that they can conduct their business in a more organized manner.
