City beautification campaign in Kalahandi will destroy many livelihoods, Pls stop

My name is Giridhari Patra. I am calling from Sachetan Nagrik Manch in Bhawanipatna in Kalahandi district of Odisha. Here administration has started breaking jhuggis and roadside shops in the name of beautification campaign. Many people are dependent on these shops for their livelihood. Govt did this kind of work some years ago and many had to leave for different states. I will request all to intervene to stop destroying many people’s lives. For more Patra Ji can be reached at 09583022500
