Tribune News Service

Amritsar, November 26

Dinesh Bassi, chairman of the Amritsar Improvement Trust (AIT), on Tuesday instructed the shopkeepers at Ranjit Avenue to remove the encroachments and clean the area. Bassi left the office along with senior officials of the AIT and visited the markets. He expressed his anger over the heaps of garbage lying in the market and the vendors have encroached upon the land at Vishal Mega Mart market.

Bassi directed the officials to remove illegal vends and gen sets lying outside the showrooms.

“ A lot of garbage is lying on road sides of posh colonies in the city. I am regularly getting complaints of traffic jams on these roads. We have spent crores of rupees to beautify these areas but encroachers and shopkeepers ruining the beauty of market”, said Bassi.

He gave directions to AIT officials to keep the district shopping complex clean.

It is worth mentioning here that the association of shopkeepers often complaint that even after collecting heavy tax from market, the authorities are not providing proper facilities in markets.
