Jamshedpur: A team of Jamshedpur Notified Area Committee and district police had to face opposition during the beginning of an encroachment drive near Mango bus stand on Saturday. Due to the ruckus created by the local house and shop owners, the authorities had to go back without executing the anti-encroachment drive.
Sources said the encroachment drive was disrupted right in the very beginning when the police and local administration officials went to the private bus stand to remove encroachment from the roadside. Local residents and vendors gathered at the venue and raised protest. They refused to allow the police to go further with their plans. This led the officials to return unsuccessful in their attempt.
The officials said the encroachment was being removed following the order of the district administration. The administration had issued the order to rid the main road of encroachment by local dwellers and vendors. But due to public agitation, the drive has been cancelled.
