22 illegal structures demolished

By STAFF REPORTER

GUWAHATI, May 5 - The Kamrup Metro district administration today carried out another round of eviction of illegal encroachments between the Khanapara Flyover Point and Ganesh Mandir in 9th Mile area on the Assam side of the National Highway 37.

Today�s drive targeted squatters who had returned to the area after one round of eviction had been carried out earlier this week.

�The squatters had returned to their own encroachments and started once again to construct illegal structures along the NH 37. So today we carried out another round of eviction,� said a district administration official.

At least 22 illegal structures were demolished during today�s drive.

Police and officials from the National Highways Authority of India (NHAI) also assisted the district administration during today�s eviction drive.

The administration has also directed the NHAI to ensure that all cattle roaming in and along the NH 37 in the area are collected and handed over to nearby cattle sheds.

The district administration had last month issued an order prohibiting street vending activities in that stretch and asked local officials to take action against encroachment within seven days.

The administration had also banned parking of vehicles along the road from Khanapara Flyover Point to Ganesh Mandir at 9th Mile and declared the stretch as a �No Parking Zone�.

It had said that such activities are causing severe traffic congestion as well as inconvenience to the general public commuting through that road in that part of the highway.
