Eviction drive in State capital ahead of 22nd Asian Athletics C’ship




 A massive eviction drive will be undertaken by the Bhubaneswar Municipal Corporation (BMC) in all three zones under its jurisdiction after the completion of 22nd Asian Athletics Championship.

This was decided at the monthly corporation meeting today. Common roads and drain which are encroached in various busy locations disturbing public life, will be evicted. A number of Corporators requested the civic body to look into the matter seriously. Mayor Ananat Narayan Jena instructed all Zonal Deputy Commissioners to prepare a list of such encroachments in their concerned zones. Corporator Mahamaya Swain gave a suggestion  to use the conservancy lane of Bapuji Nagar as parking place to avoid congestion during peak hours.

These lanes will be cleaned and leveling work will be carried out for use of parking. BMC hopes to meet the shortage of parking place in the busiest market of the capital, the Bapuji Nagar.

BMC Mayor Anant Narayan Jena informed that BMC will make provision of construction of ward offices in all the wards in the capital city. A request letter will be given to the GA Department for provision of land for such offices, he informed.

Précis 2017
From asking his party men to ‘live a simple life and serve the people’ to taunting the BJP for its ‘crocodile tears’, Chief Minister and BJD supremo Naveen Patnaik has not only become politically invincible, he seems to be so in the coming years too.
