Traders Association Lal Chowk constitutes Interim Body

Srinagar, Dec 31: A new interim body was formed by shopkeepers of Court Road Lal Chowk in Srinagar today.

A statement said that the traders association has been headless since ex-president Mohammad Yusuf Khan retired in August this year. Khan was appointed as president of the association in 2019.

It said that a signature campaign was held on December 26 in which every shopkeeper participated and collectively called for new elections.

“A new interim body was formed for the welfare of traders and the early conduct of elections in the association. Mohammad Lateef Lone was chosen as the President, Athar Yameen Narwari and Imtiyaz Ahmad Khan as general secretary, Sheikh Niyazi as treasurer, Mukhtar Ahmad Bhat as Publicity Secretary and Mohammad Lateef Bhat as organiser.”

“We hope the elections are conducted as soon as possible so that the issues of traders in Court Road Lal Chowk are raised and resolved at the earliest,” the traders said.

“It is an honor to assume the role of President of the Association. I am committed to fostering collaboration, innovation, and positive change within our community. Together, we can achieve new heights and make a lasting impact,” Lone said.
