Kasturchand Park which was previously used by general public for playing and walking has been converted into a full commercial space. After receiving criticism from all quarters government decided that only one fourth of the ground will be used for commercial utility and that a sum will also be allotted for its beautification so that the age old heritage is restored. But the present state of Kasturchand Park has a different story to share.
We have already heard of Nagpur Municipal Corporation anti encroachment drive to clean footpaths and roads to provide space for parking and walking. Now the demolition drive is against commercial establishments which have extended illegally in to public places and have extended their shop beyond limits by constructing shed and walls. The anti encroachment drive is supervised by civic chief Sanjeev Jaiswal and Police chief Ankush Dhanvijay. The walls and sheds will be removed and stern action will be taken against encroachers so that they do not encroach the land again.
