Puri: The district administration on Monday resumed the eviction drive near the Sri Jagannath temple here despite a protest.
The eviction drive which was halted started today with the demolition of some commercial establishments near Puri Swargadwar. Meanwhile, some women opposed the authorities move to demolish a Dharamsala located near the Swargadwar.
The agitators then disrupted the drive alleging that the Dharamsala belongs to Sri Jagannath and we will not allow the demolish the property of Lord.
Later, the administration tried to pacify the agitators but in vain.
