Early Times Report
Billawar, Aug 24: The anti-encroachment drive launched by tehsil administration Ramkot turned out to be a farce as only the poor kiosk owners have been targeted while some influential shopkeepers, who have also encroached upon the government land, have been spared for the reasons best known to them.
Over 1000, kiosks have been removed by Tehsil administration Ramkot in the alleged anti-encroachment drive launched but kiosk owners have alleged soft approach of administration towards the blue eyed shopkeepers.
Few photographs clicked by kiosk owners from the Nagrota main market, explains lot about the softness shown by tehsil administration while removing the encroachments. In the photographs shared by kiosk owners, Marble sheets and other hardware material could be found thrown outside, Shiv Dutt Marble House, Kamar Singh (Bank Employee) his own house road which is a government land but same remained untouched in the anti-encroachment drive.
Similarly another fast-food shop namely Vivek Fast Food (Owner Ganesh Kumar S/o Fakir Chand) which is running from a rented shop, is also found encroaching upon government land, outside the shop and tents have been erected for the visitors with cemented flour but same was not removed by administration.
Another School named as Indira Shishu Mandir School has reportedly encroached upon large chunk of government land where they used to park their school vehicles. The same school was not touched during the encroachment drive whereas another government employee has encroached upon government land by making a bridge to reach his house and all these shop owners were spared by tehsil administration.
"It is clear from the appeasement policy of tehsil administration Ramkot, which is undoubtedly hand in glove with these shopkeepers", a local of area said, adding that it was shameful that even some handicapped old persons, who have been running their bread and butter from meagre business from their kiosks have been demolished.
"What was behind this selective targeting of poor kiosk owners by tehsil administration. The administration always sided with wealthy people as they could easily make officials happy but the poor kiosk owners have no resources to save their even families, which is tragic", the kiosk owners rued, adding that the entire anti-encroachment drive was a reality for poor but farce for shopkeepers.
The aggrieved kiosk owners said that the poor people are being harassed by removing their kiosk while those influential and rich have not been touched. This way the Government is acting against the poor people by letting off the influential ones who have made a monopoly.
