PARSA, April 2: Birgunj Metropolitan City has given continuity to the campaign of identifying encroached public property and removing physical structures constructed illegally along the road side.  

The metropolis started removing illegal structures after such structures hampered the road expansion drive. The local government continued the campaign with the increasing trend of encroaching upon public ponds and land, and constructing physical structures on such public land.  

In the course of the campaign, the metropolis removed houses and huts in Ward No 29 on Monday. Around 7.5 kilometers of blacktopped road from Bagahi to Paras Chowk via Musaili Basadilwa, Bakner and Parsagadhi is under construction. 

The metropolis removed such huts after such structures were not removed even after frequent notices.  

Earlier, Birgunj metropolis had removed illegally constructed physical structures at Pratima Chowk of Birgunj metropolis-15 along the Postal Highway. An agreement was signed to complete the construction of a 150-meter road section from Pratima Chowk towards Kalaiya within June 12 at a cost of Rs 6.915 million.  

Hari Pokharel, secretariat advisor to Mayor of Birgunj metropolis, Rakeshman Singh, said the metropolitan city has brought 28 public ponds and more than 148 bighas of land within metropolitan city under its ownership in the course of the campaign so far.
