Thumbs down to MCG chief's plan of converting sadar bazaar into tourist destination
Few days back, the Muncipal Corporation of Gurgaon chief, Praveen Kumar had stated that he will soon convert Sadar Bazaar into a tourist destination, on the lines of Dilli Haat. No concrete plans have been set up, as of now, but the chief said that ''excellent parking facilities needs to be provided to the tourists.'' They need to have an advertisement plan first.
But, this plan has not been taken in open arms by MCG councillors. Mangat Ram Bagri, MCG Councillor said, ''It is good if the idea can be implemented, but, it might not turn out to be a reality. The administrators of MCG lack right intentions as well as policy to carry out such work.''

While another councillor, Rishi Raj Rana does not see the need for MCG to come up with such plans, when the basic needs of the people have not been addressed. He said, ''Rather than such plans, the MCG should look into various other needs of the people in Gurgaon, such as water, sewer, electricity, drainage, which is a major problem in the city. After all these basic needs are met, then they can try to achieve such bigger plans.''

So, when Praveen Kumar was told about his MCG councillors as to what they think, he said, ''No one is upbeat about such development plan and that is not my problem.''

Sadar Bazaar is the oldest market in the city and converting it into a tourist destination would remove the city of its charm and also pose as a huge problem for the shopkeepers in the market. ''There is no benefit in converting such bazaar into a tourist destination. In fact, this plan of MCG spells a kick in the stomach for shopkeepers in the market,'' said Rana.
