Taking strict note of the encroachments on more than 1,000 km of link roads in the district, Deputy Commissioner (DC) Rahul Tiwari today ordered the concerned officers to get all encroachments removed by May 18 or the administration will register criminal cases against the encroachers. According to the information available, out of the total 28,000 km length of link roads, there are encroachments on more than 10,000 km.
The deputy commissioner stated that officers should prepare a list of defaulters by May 18 and they should bring it to the May 18 meeting. Tiwari will also review the action taken till May 18.
He asked the encroachers to clear the encroachments on their own, warning them that otherwise all the charges of clearing the encroachments and even making the road will later be put on them.
The deputy commissioner stated that the wheat harvesting season is now over and the paddy sowing will start on June 1. So farmers have ample time to clear the encroachments.
He pointed out that the encroachments are causing lots of accidents which are resulting in loss of lives and made it clear that this would not be tolerated anymore. He asked the officers to issue notices within three days.
The deputy commissioner also directed them to get announcements made at temples and Gurudwaras as well so that villagers can become alert well in advance.
