An environment will be created for the pavement hawkers to engage in their businesses in a manner that would not obstruct the pedestrians during the upcoming Sinhala and Tamil New Year celebrations, Senior Advisor to the President on National Security and Chief of Staff of the President Sagala Ratnayake said.
He made this observation when he met the representatives of the 'Kolomthota Eksath Welenda Sangamaya' and other pavement hawkers associations at the President's Office last evening.
He had a cordial discussion with the pavement hawkers giving ear to their issues and agreed to solve them in a manner that it would not cause inconvenience to the pedestrians.
He added that he would discuss the pavement hawkers' issues with the President and appoint a committee to solve them.
Meanwhile, Ratnayake in consultation with the Inspector General of Police took steps to solve issues presented by some pavement hawkers during the meeting itself.
Attention was also drawn to issuing a special identity card for the pavement hawkers taking into account the demands of the pavement hawkers.
