Bhubaneswar :15/7/19: Cracking whips on squatters, authorities here evicted the encroachers to create space for unhindered vehicular and pedestrian movement at city’s Saheed Nagar, City Bus Terminal near Master canteen chowk.
Illegal structures were razed to the ground. The eviction drive has been protest-free. With the encroached area being done away with, wider passage has been created for pedestrian and vehicular traffic movement, said officials.
The ongoing eviction drive will be intensified further to other encroached areas in the coming days.
“It has been seen in the past that evicted areas are re-encroached. Thus the authorities need to undertake the road widening work immediately to avert possible reoccupation of the government land”, felt a local, Sukant Rout.
The eviction drive was jointly carried out by enforcement team of BDA, CRUT and Commissionerate Police, said officials.
