Mayor on Deb’s campaign against footpath encroachment

Siliguri, 10th August (Sanjay Malakar): State Tourism Minister Goutam Deb has been continuously taking the initiative to relieve the people of the city from the traffic congestion. Today, the Minister gave directives to remove the stalls put up by the hawkers illegally on the pavements along the roadside and to free the sidewalk from encroachment.
On the counter, Mayor Ashok Bhattacharya accused this initiative of the Minister as a publicity stunt and a strategy of self-promotion. He further said that by separating the Municipal Corporation from the campaign, the Minister is trying to show off, but it was futile.
