The tehbazari wing of the municipal corporation on Wednesday carried out an anti-encroachment drive and removed encroachments from PNB Chowk, Jail Chowk, Jyoti Chowk, 120 ft Road and Kala Sanghian Road here.
The drive continued for five hours and Rangla Vehra situated near Bhagwan Valmiki Chowk was also sealed. It is for the third time in the month that the superintendent of the department, Mandeep Singh, had to come to seal the basement of Rangla Vehra. “Every time we lock it, we find its locks broken. But I would not let this happen again,” he said.
Notably, the issue of mafia operating in the basement parking of Rangla Vehra was raised in the general house meeting too, after which the department had also asked for police help to deal with the mafia.
The anti-encroachment drive could not be carried out due to the outbreak of the pandemic but now the department has swung into the action again. “Now, such drives will continue. We had already planned that after the festival, we will carry out the drive and continue with it,” said the superintendent.
