Bhubaneswar: Tension prevailed near the Kalinga Stadium as an enforcement squad of the BMC, BDA and the GA Department conducted an eviction drive at Gate No 1 to drive out illegal encroachers and it was stiffly opposed by the the latter (slum dwellers) this morning.

While the squad tried to evict a Goshala (cowshed), slum dwellers opposed them. A large number of police personnel have been deployed at the spot.

In protest, slum dwellers have sat on a dharana at the Jayadev Vihar square. The slum dwellers have demanded that should be rehabilitated first.

It may be noted that a joint eviction squad has been conducting eviction drives to free encroachments from around the Kalinga Stadium in view of coming Boys’ Hockey World Cup, beginning in November this year.
