Areas like Charbagh, Hussainganj, Alambagh, Chowk, Hazratganj, Meerabai Marg would also be covered during the operation.

Municipal commissioner Rakesh Kumar Singh said, “The roster for the joint drives has been prepared carefully and all the areas would be visited thrice during this period. If the encroachers are found again, then FIRs would be lodged.”
