Scraps on two roads were cleared off


The parts of these two roads remained encroached for the past several years despite frequent attempts to clear off the illegal occupation. The operation continued for nearly three hours. The operation began with loading scrap items using bulldozers. Though the scrap vendors and the owners protested and urged the authorities to give some more time to clear the scrap materials from the road, the officials carried on with the operation with police security.

It may be recalled that MCC Commissioner and Deputy Commissioner V Ponnuraj had visited these two roads on last Saturday and warned the owners to clear the footpaths within two days.

Speaking to Deccan Herald, MCC Commissioner Dr Vijayaprakash said “we cleared off nearly one and half kilometre road. Either side of the roads were filled with scrap materials, old and torn items, old vehicles, sheets, which were causing lot of inconvenience to the movement of vehicles as well as pedestrians. We had already served notice to the owners concerned. However, very few of them had cleared the roads.”
