Encroachments reappear in Saddar

KARACHI: Illegal occupation of footpaths and roads by pushcart and ‘Pathara holders’ has narrowed Saddar area especially around Empress Market, Bohri Bazaar, Regal and the opening of New Preedy Street. The Karachi Metropolitan Corporation (KMC) and other concerned departments have carried out dozens of ‘operations’ in this busy area to remove the encroachments but in vain. Area residents say these operations continue to fail because the encroachers and anti-encroachment officials are hand and glove with a very strong relation of ‘Bhatta’ which can not be broken by any operation.
