Encroachments from School Chauraha to Achana road were removed during the drive. Many people who had made up their minds to oppose the move stepped back, seeing the heavy consignment of police force.
Many people also removed the encroachments by themselves. This is the first time that such a large scale encroachment drive has been initiated by the administration.
