Amid protests by fisher folk and BJP workers, officials of the Revenue Department and the GHMC on Thursday removed encroachments at the Chinnama Cheruvu at Ramanthapur on Thursday. The protestors later partially rebuilt the structure once the officials exited the scene. Officials said the management of the Ganga Bhavani Temple, which is situated in the Full Tank Level area of the lake, had taken up expansion activities despite official orders against it.

The management had constructed a compound wall on the encroached portion of the lake and was going ahead with the expansion work.
