Amritsar, November 6

Due to rampant encroachment, the link road connecting the railway road and court road near the general post office remains underutilized.

High number of customers on the 250-meter stretch has attracted the attention of roadside vendors selling various types of items, especially ready-made dress material and junk food.

NS Gabarhia, a resident of the railway link road, said the government had made the crackdown a non-bailable offense way back in the late 1990s. Despite this, there has been no change in the scenario. Unless strict measures are taken, nothing can change. He appealed to the authority to enforce the anti-encroachment law at the earliest. He urged the Commissioner for Municipal Corporations to take time from archive work for field work.

Amarjit Singh, a businessman, said several shopkeepers were behind the mess. To attract customers, squatters set up stalls here. Officials’ negligence contributed to the problems people had, he said.
