HYDERABAD: The Greater Hyderabad Municipal Corporation (GHMC) on Tuesday swung into action and demolished several illegal encroachments that have come up on the footpaths from Shalibanda to Charminar bus stand.
The Town Planning wing in the presence of police force took up the demolition drive though some shop keepers resisted to stop the demolitions. GHMC South Zone Commissioner Balasubrahmanyam Reddy said that GHMC has removed the illegal encroachments that have come up along the footpaths.
Due to lack of footpaths, it was creating problems for the pedestrians to walk on the congested road from Charminar to Shalibanda.
The drive will be continued till the illegal footpath encroachments are removed, he added.
