Fed up with the constant encroachment on the footpath of VCA stadium at Civil Lines, storeowners across the same area as well as residents demand the razing of the encroachment prevalent on the footpath.
With the ongoing construction of cement road opposite VCA coupled with the encroachment, it has made all the more difficult for customers visiting various stores a cumbersome task. With just few days to go for Diwali, where the sales are at its peak, storeowners are upset as their customers are finding it extremely difficult to park their vehicles and visit their stores.
One of the storeowners on the basis of anonymity told us, The encroachment has been existing since so long; wonder why no action has been taken against them. The road anyway is so narrow currently because of the ongoing construction work and to add to it, the encroached footpath has become a huge nuisance.
Another storeowner added, The encroachers park their vans all day long thus occupying the footpath as well as the road. If any another civilian parks his car at the same place, the traffic police put jammers on the car. They don’t put jammer on the encroachers car just because they give them hafta?
When we spoke to Nagpur Traffic DCP Chinmay Pandit about the issue, he told us, We haven’t received any official complaint regarding the same. But if we receive, we’re ready to provide them with all the help.”
Deepraj Pardikar, Deputy Mayor at Nagpur Municipal Corporation (NMC) said, “We plan to raze the encroachment in the entire city within 15-20 days, We’ve been carrying out an anti-encroachment drive since a while; it’s just that due to elections we couldn’t entirely finish the drive. But now, we’ve resumed our work.”

Shashi Tharoor is capable of bringing Congress back in power, says Congress leader Ashish Deshmukh
Former MLA and Member of Parliamentary Board, MPCC Dr Ashish Deshmukh speaking about the nomination filed by Congress MP Shashi Tharoor for the post of Congress President on Friday, said, “Dr Shashi Tharoor is a popular Congress MP who has done remarkable work for the nation at the international level. It’s very welcoming thing that the election of Congress President is being done in a democratic manner. This is an important step for decentralisation in the party and the future of Congress is bright. Soniaji and Rahulji Gandhi contributed a lot to strengthen the party.”
Congress leader Deshmukh added, “This is an important step taken by the Congress elites for the elections in a democratic manner so that the party can take a higher flight. Dr Shashi Tharoor has cordial relations with everyone in the party; he has the ability to give a new direction to the party. I believe that he will be able to handle the responsibility of bringing the Congress to power in the country by taking the party forward with new strength. If he seriously deals with issues like unemployment, industry, agriculture, inflation then Congress will have fruitful days. By doing transparent politics, he will definitely convey the thought of Congress to the people at the grassroots level. If you want a rejuvenated, bigger and dynamic Congress party, Dr. Shashi Tharoor is the right candidate. He has the open support of Congress delegates in 12 states and is getting the support of Congress leaders and activists from all over India. He will be elected for sure.”
Deshmukh informed that Tharoor would be visiting Nagpur on October 1 and 2 to hear out all thoughts of Congress delegates.
Nagpur citizens to revel The Raaas Garba next year!
Since The Raaas enchanted and enthralled Nagpur with its quality garba in its first year in 2018, the demand for encore has been reverberating the city. To cater to the huge public demand, the organisers of the king of garbas have decided to continue The Raaas next year on. Like its first year, The Raaas Garba will be presented to Nagpur in association with Nation Next in 2023. Mahesh Kukreja, the key organiser said, “Because of some reasons, we, earlier, thought of giving the event a break.”
He added, “Then COVID-19 struck the world. Now we plan to continue it from next year onwards. While I express my gratitude to Nagpurians to make the event a huge hit, I request the city’s garba revellers to not get fooled as a few garbas are falsely claiming to be The Raaas. We’ll be back next year for sure!”
