LUCKNOW:In a ma­jor drive against en­croach­ments, around 70 ramps were re­moved by antien­croach­ment squad of Lucknow Mu­nic­i­pal Cor­po­ra­tion in Saa­dat­ganj, Bawli Chowki, Patharkata road in zone VI on Fri­day. These ramps were block­ing the nul­lahs and drains caus­ing over­flow of filthy wa­ter in the lo­cal­ity, said zonal of­fi­cer Ambi Bisht.

She said, “The squad faced re­sis­tance at sev­eral places but the heavy po­lice force ac­com­pa­ny­ing the LMC anti-en­croach­ment squad en­sured that the drive was car­ried out suc­cess­fully. The po­lice chased away trou­ble-mak­ers to keep the sit­u­a­tion un­der control.”

Mean­while, the LMC squad chal­laned more than 20 ve­hi­cles parked wrongly in front of LMC of­fice. Be­sides, Rs 50,000 was re­cov­ered as fine from 12 en­croach­ers who had ex­tended their plat­form and shades on road in Lal­bagh, said zonal of­fi­cer Naren­dra Dev Varma.

He said LMC will not al­low any sort of en­croach­ment on roads as it not only halts the pace of traf­fic flow but also causes ac­ci­dents. The drive against en­croach­ments would con­tinue in the days to come.
