Bhubaneswar: A squad of Bhubaneswar Municipal Corporation (BMC) conducted an eviction drive at the Market No 1 area in Bhubaneswar.
According to sources, 15 fruit stalls and a cabinet were demolished during the drive. The BMC officials pulled down the shops situated between the stretch of Raj Mahal Chhak to AG square using JCBs.
The shop owners have illegally occupied government land. Besides, the eviction drive will enable the public to move freely on the roads, informed an official.
The eviction drive has sparked resentment among traders, whose products were seen lying unattended on the roadside.
