Itanagar, Oct 18 (UNI) The ongoing eviction drive along National Highway 52A and capital complex here is aimed at urban planning and would continue to ensure planned growth for the state capital, Executive Magistrate cum estate officer of capital complex, Talo Potom today said.

The eviction drive on Thursday at Naharlagun Super-market area evoked sharp reactions among the women vegetable vendors who called Naharlagun Bazaar bandh yesterday.

'' They are claiming the eviction as illegal but the fact is that they are illegally occupying the government property and several of them even do not posses a trading license,'' Mr Potom added while interacting with media.

He further said resistance would not deter the government to carry out its objectives to prevent further damage to the environment of the capital complex.

Referring to the notification issued by the government in this regard, the magistrate disclosed that a monitoring committee has been constituted, headed by the Chief Secretary to take stock of the action.

Affirming that everyone would be treated equally in the eyes of law during the eviction drive, Mr Potom sought full co-operation from the public to beautify the capital township.

He further informed that traffic movement would be largely improved only if proper parking slots are earmarked.

Highlighting the government plans to implement Jawaharlal Nehru National Urban Renewal Mission (JNNURM) in the state, Mr Potom made it clear that the eviction was inevitable.
