On Tuesday, Municipal Corporation of Gurgaon (MCG) removed encroachments from the streets of Sadar bazaar - one of Gurgaon's main markets. During the drive, MCG removed all encroachments from the roads and all stuff of shopkeepers who had extended their shops to the road.
“These encroachments and extension of shops were making Sadar's road narrower and thus it was getting difficult for people to even move on foot. Earlier, we had put all efforts to manage the traffic and footfall but with the increase in the number of people coming to this market we had to take this step,” an MCG official told this citizen journalist
The corporation officials had already warned the shopkeepers not to keep their stuff on road. After finding that shopkeepers hadn’t taken seriously the warning of the corporation, the action was taken. “We had requested them before and again requested them to keep their goods under the limit allotted to them. We will take stricter action if we find their stuff outside their shops again,” an officer added.
With the support of Gurgaon Traffic Police, MCG's encroachment team also cleared illegal hoardings from Sadar and nearby areas, and from Sohna road all illegal advertisements were removed at the instruction of MCG chief Ashok Sangwan.
Along with this drive, Sangwan also ordered his officers to fill all pot holes of all main and sub roads in Gurgaon. He ordered to repair all pot holes in just 10 days and also repair those roads which are still waiting for sewer and water pipelines to be laid.
Chief engineer BS Singroha said that development work is going on in all the areas of corporation in Gurgaon and the work of sewer and waterpipes will be completed very soon, and thus in coming summer all 37 villages of Gurgaon will get water supply from the corporation.
