Shoping plaze needs attention

STAFF REPORTER
Gangtok:
The elevator of Kanchenjunga Shopping Plaza in Gangtok, which was constructed to provide convenient and easy movement during rush hours and at the same time to eliminate the inconvenience of climbing stairs with heavy loads, till date remains closed and there is no one to look after the facility or to answer why the elevator is not made operational.
The popular shopping plaza is always full of rush, particularly during the Sunday Haat, and crammed with shoppers. Customers often have to jostle in crowd to find their way. An elevator can help in easing thye trouble people are facing.
At present the elevator’s door space in the first floor is occupied by a vegetable vendor. “The elevator would be very helpful in rush hours, basically for the elders”, one of the customers told this reporter on Friday. Mr. Palden Lama, General Secretary of Lal Bazaar Traders’ Association informed that the concerned department several times gave assurances to commission the elevator since its inauguration, but nothing happened so far. “We are simply traders and we want our customers to be happy. We do not understand the technology of elevator and the cause of its remaining idle should be known to the concerned department”, he said.
Apart from the elevator, fire fighting system in the Plaza, including fire extinguishers, are not quite in order. Function of one of the important fire fighting equipments, i.e. water sprayers installed in the ceiling of every chamber, is still a mystery. “We have not seen any demonstration of the work of the equipment and we don’t have any idea how does it work and what does it do”, Mr. Palden said.
Hygiene of the shopping complex is also a matter of concern for traders and customers alike, as it has been earlier highlighted in the media.

I always wanted a knowledge house about Sikkim, its past, present and future. I do not know over the years how much did i succeed but my determination to let other understand my Sikkim is always giving me a push. with regards Shital Pradhan (himalayanreview@gmail.com)
