Patiala, February 25

The Municipal Corporation (MC) today removed encroachments in the old grain market at Nabha Gate. The civic body removed sheds and other construction done by shopkeepers in the area.

Corporation officials said sheds and construction work of over 30 shops was removed during the drive that went on for over six hours.

Mayor Sanjeev Kumar Sharma said providing vehicle parking facility in the old city was a challenge. The grain market was shifted outside the city years ago, but removal of encroachments here was pending due to a court case, he added.

The civic body XEN, Sham Lal Gupta, said, “The drive has been carried out as road in the area has to be widened. Earlier, a case was filed because of which we were not able to carry out development work in the area. Now, stay in the court case has been removed after which we cleared encroachments today.”
