Street hawkers lead to safe roads and a growing economy. That's the conclusion of Dinesh Mohan, a professor at the Indian Institute of Technology in Delhi, according to Sakaal Times.
"Hawkers have to be there on roads," he said at a recent conference on urban transportation. "They are the most enterprising entrepreneurs who are doing business every day by occupying little space, consuming very little energy and generating reasonable revenue. They are contributing to the economic growth. It is because of them that the Indian roads are comparatively safer from mischief doers."
