Alleged of not cooperating with Municipal council, Police launches anti encroachment drive with poor output
POONCH TODAY NEWS
POONCH: The issue of encroachment of market space has remained a most debatable topic, but no body from Municipal council and Police tried to sort out this most burning issue which has been creating problems for the people of Poonch city. On one hand, Municipal council alleged non cooperation from police over encroachment cases, but on the other hand, police used to take action against encroachment once in a blue moon just to fulfill the formality. Few days back, a drive over capturing of market space was started by police and also issued strict warning to some people not to capture market space again, but after police left the market, shopkeepers and rehriwalas encroached the market space again, thereby mocking at the efforts of police who produced a poor output. It is pertinent to mention here that Poonch Municipality has done nothing in tackling this issue of growing encroachment of market space as no strong effort was made to settle the issue once for all. Police also used to visit market occasionally. Therefore, weak approach from both Municipal council and police is proving heavy over the concerns raised by the people on this issue. Due to huge encroachment of market space by shopkeepers and rehiwals, public is facing huge inconvenience, but in solving the issue on priority, both the institutions of Police and Municipality have shrunken. A continuous drive against the encroachers is necessary to set the market system on track, feel prominent businessmen.
