Relief for Businessmen of Khanapur Road over Eviction drive
Ex-Deputy Mayor Prakash Shirolkar along with the businessmen of Khanapur road have approached District in-charge minister Satish Jarkiholli to hold the eviction drive between Mahaveer Bhavan and 3rd gate along Khanapur road. Also they have asked not to depute Belagavi City Corporation (BCC) Commissioner M R Ravikumar on the said mission as he will not listen to any person.
In the meeting, the 14 businessmen who have brought stay order argued that some section of the road is widened only about 90-98 ft. However, the PWD department which earlier carried out the eviction drive, has directed the BCC to clear the encroachments on the rest of the 120 ft wide road, as it has not issued ‘NO OBJECTION’ certificate to any buildings in the specified area.
District Minister Satish Jarkiholli informed that a period of 15 days has been granted to all the alleged encroacher’s to produce valid supporting documents. Failing to which will lead to strict demolition drive.
