Kathmandu, May 11
Citing crowds continued to gather notwithstanding the implementation of the lockdown to contain the coronavirus spread, the Kalimati fruit and vegetable market, the biggest vegetable market in the Kathmandu valley, has shut its retailing section.
The wholesaling section, however, will operate smoothly, according to the Kalimati Fruit and Vegetable Market Development Board’s Executive Director Binod Kumar Bhattarai.
Earlier today, a team deployed from the Kathmandu District Administration Office had monitored the market. The team had recommended closing the market as long as the prohibitory order in Kathmandu continues. Bhattarai says a decision was made accordingly.
