TURA | August 26, 2019:
In order to tackle illegal encroachments in the road and market area in the main Williamnagar Bazaar, the deputy commissioner of East Garo Hills, Swapnil Tembe has decided to take stern actions against those indulging in unlawful activities in state.
The decision came after an inspection involving municipal officials and the administration was undertaken on Friday last week, August 23.
Earlier last week, various NGOs of Williamnagar had threatened to picket the offices of the Williamnagar Municipal Board (WMB) after various complaints were not worked on the authorities. The NGOs had sought the various illegal encroachments along the road to Warima bridge and the main market to be dismantled to allow for smooth traffic.
The DC after an inspection updated that many constructions along the route were indeed illegal and as such notices would be sent to all of them. Further a separate auto parking zone would be demarcated in an effort to decongest traffic around the market.
Further the deputy commissioner was surprised to find many encroachments stealing electricity through hooking, with many wasting power even during day time.
