New Delhi, Aug 15 (ANI): Sale of kites and flags recorded have majorly dipped this Independence Day as compared to the last year, said small buisnessmen of old Delhi. The local vendors blamed COVID-19 for the drop in sales. “Only 25% of usual Independence Day sales have happened till now as compared to previous years. The cost price of our goods has also increased, with low sales figures. People are scared to come out of their houses this year. We have very less work,” said shopkeeper Ankit Jain.
