Hawkers On Strike, Lucknow Without Newspaper For 9 Days Now

The newspaper hawkers have been on strike since September 1 in Lucknow.


Lucknow:  Residents in Lucknow have been going without newspapers for the past nine days as hawkers in the city have gone on a strike demanding a hike in their commission.

The newspaper hawkers have been on strike since September 1 to press for their demand.

"Newspaper owners have reduced our commission because of which we have been left with no option but to go on strike," president of Uttar Pradesh Hawkers Association, Raj Bihari Munna, said.

He said he met Principal Secretary (Information) Navneet Sehgal on Friday who has appointed a deputy director-level officer to hold meeting with owners to find a way out.

Mr Munna said the commission of hawkers has been lowered by the owners from September 1.
