Indore (Madhya Pradesh): As many as 125 commercial and residential structures coming in the way of the Kulkarni-ka-Bhatta bridge project were demolished by Indore Municipal Corporation on Monday. Armed with four JCB and four Poclain machines, the demolition squad accompanied by a heavy police contingent reached Kulkarni-ka-Bhatta and started the demolition drive.

“We removed close to 125 structures which were a hurdle for the bridge project,” said additional municipal commissioner Devendra Singh. The structures included 50 shops owned by IMC, 45 houses, including 15 in Bansi-ki-Chawl and 30 kiosks.

The bridge is under construction for the past three to four years, but still has not been completed because of the structures there. Many a time, the removal drive was carried out, but it stopped midway due to political interference and disputes.

After evacuating people from the buildings coming in the way of the project, IMC once again started a removal drive at Kulkarni-ka-Bhatta on Monday morning. “Once all structures are removed, the construction work on the bridge will be expedited and competed as soon as possible,” Singh said.
