Buyers questioned vendors for hiking the prices of flowers

Goa: Local flower sellers at Vasco turned back around 13 flower-laden trucks belonging to vendors from Maharashtra who had come to the port town to sell marigolds for the upcoming Dussehra festival. Sources said the local flower vendors sent back the trucks claiming that they will not allow outsiders to do business in the port town.

When buyers questioned the vendors for hiking the prices of flowers from Rs 120 per kg to Rs 200-250 per kg, the vendors shot back saying they were affected due to the pandemic and that the customers should not complain. While the buyers debated that they too were too going through hard times, at some places the flower vendors were seen threatening customers of complaining to some municipal councillors.

“For almost 20 years vendors from Maharashtra have been coming down to the Vasco to do business before Dussehra, and there has never been a problem. The civic authorities should have control over the local markets,” Pradeep Gawas, a buyer, said.
