Baltana shopkeepers gherao MC officials

Zirakpur: The enforcement wing of the Zirakpur Municipal Council on Wednesday faced stiff resistance from shopkeepers in Baltana when the officials began an anti-encroachment drive near the Kalgidhar Enclave area. The protesting shopkeepers in the furniture market gheraoed the MC vehicle and stopped the traffic for some time. Police force had to be called in to bail out MC officials. The MC vehicle was taken to the police station following which the shopkeepers reached the police station. Later, the confiscated goods and the vehicle were shifted to the MC office.

Zirakpur Executive Officer Girish Verma said, “MC officials were stopped while doing the duty. Police had to be called in. Fine will be levied on shopkeepers who encroach on the road and other areas.”

The shopkeepers alleged that MC officials harass businessmen during the festival season and do not give receipts of the fine charged. Police officials said no written complaint has been given in this regard. — TNS
