SHEIKHUPURA – The inhabitants of city Sheikhupura have demanded that the Tehsil Municipal Administration should remove encroachments from all the bazaars and markets before Eidul Azha.

They said that shopkeepers and pushcarts owners have occupied not only roads but even footpaths and hampering smooth flow of traffic while and the citizens are facing a lot of problems. It is observed the shopkeepers particularly in Main Bazaar, Civil Quarters Road, Mesile Chowk, Khadim Hussain Road and its adjoining bazaar linked to main bazaar are displaying their articles in front of their shops while some shopkeepers rented out places in front with connivance of the TMA staffers causing great inconvenience to pedestrian.

The encroachers have occupied both the sides of roads and left no space for parking and the staff of the department concerned only visits the area once in the morning to remove the encroachments but as soon as they leave the encroachers again set up their stalls there.
