The unauthorized occupations in a lane in Rangpo Mandi Bazar that were standing in the way of movement of people and clearing of the drains were removed on Wednesday by Rangpo Nagar Panchayat with the assistance of Rangpo Police.
It was learnt that the dreaded disease of dengue spread in the same area last year and since then the Rangpo Nagar Panchayat was keeping a surveillance on the area. RNP authorities in the past few months had several times asked people occupying the lanes to move out, through notices as well as personal meetings. But no one residing in this lane was taking any notice of the warnings. A RNP team was finally compelled to take the initiative to remove the illegal constructions and clear the debris.
