Eviction drive continues at Bistupur to streamline traffic

Jamshedpur : The increasing encroachment on the Government and Tata Steel lease land area particularly on busy market areas has become a matter of concern for the district administration.

With city roads squeezing day by day due to encroachments, the district administration today launched launch anti-encroachment drive in the city. The drive started by administration along with police today continued with eviction drive on third day too at Bistupur. During the drive police also seized vehicles in no parking zone.

“We want to streamline the traffic movement in the city. We are taking initiatives to vacate the illegal constructions so that the vehicles can move easily,” said an officer.

He said that the shop owners were asked to remove the encroached areas. Kadma, Bistupur, Sakchi and Jugsalai, which are the busiest areas of the town, over fifty fruit vendors and vegetable sellers have encroached the road and there are always a traffic jam as the fruit vendors have occupied one forth portion of the road, making difficult to move the heavy vehicles.

Encroachments in the city are omnipresent and thriving, much to the discomfort of the ordinary citizen. Be it the road, parks, pavements, markets or public land taken over in the name of religion, the city is known for the encroachments which blot the urban landscape.

Sources informed that several illegal jhuggis and shops have been raised in areas in Mango, Golpahari, Loco Colony, Karandih, Jugsalai, Sakchi and Bistupur. Though several times the anti-encroachment drives have been carried but due to support of local goons the people are able to intrude the land again. The administration has identified these areas and will soon intensify the drive.

“The eviction drive is being taken up in view of a plan to widen the road to enable of operation of buses and traffic through it. Encroachment of public land in the city has become an urban eyesore. It has brought traffic movement to a crawl. Steps need be taken to vacate the illegal constructions,” said police official.
