<!– /11440465/Dna_Article_Middle_300x250_BTF –>The local markets in the residential areas of Noida — adjoining Delhi — have become an open drinking zone for the youngsters. At any residential market in the city one can clearly see the youngsters drinking alcohol fearlessly and playing loud music in their car in the evening and late at night. This has not only created problems for the shopkeepers but for the local residents also.”It has become a major law and order problem in the city and our daughters and sisters can’t step out of house after 6 pm in our own local market,” said Vijay Kochar owner of a snack centre at Godawari market in Noida.On Thursday, a bunch of youngsters were seen drinking on their car’s boot space openly and dancing on the streets at Godawari market. Just a few meters away there was a PCR van from where the cops were witnessing the scene but weren’t doing anything to stop them.”Despite knowing that drinking in public is a punishable offence, these guys were creating nuisance. And UP police is as usual,” said another resident.According to a shopkeeper, everyday people come here to drink and do drugs in their parked cars.”Despite several complaints and police calls no action has been taken,” said a tea vendor in the market.Not only people come here to drink but the dingy lane adjacent to the market helps them find a place to do drugs.”I have seen people doing drugs and they get weed from the lanes leading to the slums behind the market area,” said Kochar.The residents say that the place becomes so unsafe that it is difficult to go to the market.”We find it unsafe to go to the market place in the evening as this place gets filled with people under the influence of drugs and alcohol. There is no police patrolling after 8 pm. We make police calls when some nuisance is taking place but still our complaints go unheard,” said Rekha Kapoor, a resident of Sector 37 of Noida.When DNA checked out marketplaces across the city at around seven, the shopkeepers and residents shared the same problems.At Bhramaputra Market in Sector 29 an owner of a food stall said, “It is illegal to drink in open but we earn extra money to serve food to the people drinking in their cars.” Interestingly, there is a shattered police post just opposite the market which is always locked and a police control room van parked near the market area allows these youngsters to drink openly.Similar scenes were seen at Sector 30 market where people drink in open behind the restaurants.It was also witnessed that the police personnel inside the PCR vans were mutely watching the people drinking at public places.
