After Raahgiri initiative, Bhubaneswar Municipal Corporation (BMC) is now planning to set up night bazaars in the city. It floated the question to citizens in both Facebook and twitter and received some enthusiastic responses.
BMC commissioner, Krishan Kumar, said they have five locations on mind for the night market. “We have selected Ekamra Haat, Khandagiri market, Unit-II, periphery of BMC-Bhawani mall and Infocity area. Multiple agencies will be involved to make the concept successful,” Kumar said, adding, “the night bazaars will focus on handicrafts and food. We have thought of organizing music shows and cultural programmes on Fridays and Saturdays.
