The Municipal Corporation carried out an anti-encroachment drive in the Sector 25 Bhaskar Colony market and challaned about 15 violators for encroaching upon government land. Some 150 policemen accompanied the Municipal Corporation demolition staff. Police Sub Inspector Harminder Jeet, of the Sector 24 Police Station, said that small raddi shops were the focus of the demolition drive.
During the drive, all the walls and passages were cleared. Bhaskar Colony residents welcomed the demolitions as unsightly clutter was cleared away.
Naturally, the displaced raddi traders were upset. They claimed that the MC enforcement staff had descended on them without warning. They pointed out that by collecting plastic and other discarded things from the streets they too were contributing to the cleanliness of the city.
They said that the Constitution of India gives everyone the right to livelihood and if they are not permitted to conduct their trade from the Bhaskar Colony market then the MC or the Administration should set aside some other area for them.The MC demolished all structures that were within five metres of the main roads.
