“We are providing free transportation to residents who are shifting their household material. The LMC and LDA have deployed vehicles for the purpose,” said Tripathi.

The demolition drive is being carried out to remove encroachments between the barrage and Kukrail to reclaim the Kukrail riverbed.

“The LDA team is at Vasant Kunj to help residents in shifting. If people are facing problem, immediate solution is being provided to them,” he said while speaking to media.

“After the demolition at Akbar Nagar II, we will move towards Akbar Nagar I,” he added.
