The anti encroachment drive at Gandhibagh market started on 5th May 2012. Illegal shops and unauthorized constructions were demolished.
The demolition drive will increase size of footpaths which had been encroached by shop keepers and other dwellers. This will also help reduce traffic jam and ensure smooth flow of traffic.
Meanwhile slum dwellers staged their protest at RBI square under the banner of Jan Samasya Nivaran Samiti.
