Operation footpath successful

 The citizens lauded the CMC for taking a bold action against the encroachers.
Some shopkeepers had voluntarily cleared encroachments on their own and extended full co-operation for the CMC employees to clear debris. Two earth moving machines were used for this purpose. The drive began from Mahaveer Circle early in the morning.

CMC President M J Chikkanna,  Commissioner Ramaswamy, Tahsildar Dr Rajendraprasad were present on the spot till the completion of the drive on VV Road.  
The police had made elaborate security arrangements in the entire area as a precautionary measure.

 A bundh-like situation was prevailing on V V Road and adjoining areas.
There was no resistance from anybody because of which the drive passed off peacefully.

Development
The CMC has decided to beautify footpath on V V Road at a cost of Rs 40 lakh under the Chief Minister’s Small and Medium Towns Development Scheme. In another development, Tahsildar Dr  Rajendra Prasad said road widening will be taken up after footpath clearance. The taluk administration has already undertaken a survey of the road to identify encroachment for clearing the same.

This work will begin after the government releases funds. In some places, nearly five to eight feet of footpath have been encroached.
