GUWAHATI, Nov 1 - The Guwahati Municipal Corporation (GMC) today carried out an eviction drive by the side of the Nalini Bala Devi Park in Paltan Bazar area of Guwahati.
The Corporation evicted vegetable vendors illegally occupying a significant portion of the area, obstructing movement of traffic.
“The encroachment used to cause traffic issues, as the vegetable vendors have also erected temporary sheds obstructing the view at the road turn. After receiving public complaint, the drive was carried out this morning,” said GMC sources.
However, it was learnt that the vendors came back to sell vegetables at the same spot in the evening.
Another drive was carried out at KC Sen Road at Paltan Bazar and vendors occupying a portion of the footpath were evicted.
