The annual shopping festival of Agartala City mostly known as Chaitra Mela began amid covid19 spike. After a spell of arguments and conflict of thoughts among different groups pertaining to the fair it has started. The “reduction sales” people generally used to call it for the heavy discounts imposed on products that essentially sold with a much higher price tag in the shops. “We have been given space here which is adequate. Other facilities like electricity and water are also being made on the part of AMC” said one trader. Meanwhile the clouds of uncertainty were hovering over the fair this year as the covid19 cases are raising day by day and administration was unwilling to invite unnecessary crowding in the city. But after all amid Covid19 surge the Chaitra Mela has started.
