DCO Muhammad Usman has taken serious notice of the publication of reports in the national dailies regarding mushroom growth of permanent and temporary encroachments and presence of push carts (rehris) and rickshaws which has created hurdles in the smooth flow of traffic and also caused insanitation due to overflowing of open drains in front of business houses, which had constructed ‘tharas’.

The DCO has ordered TMA Administrator Nauman Hafeez and TO Regulation Ikramullah Sandhu to launch a vigorous anti-encroachment campaign to remove hurdles from Alipur Road, Vanike Road, Jalalpur Road, Madhrianwala Road, Kassoki Road, Circular Road, Gujranwala Road and Bypass. The TMA staff has launched anti-encroachments drive on Friday.
