Sanitation stressed

To start with two or three roads in the town would be identified and developed on par with a corporation. Encroachments will be summarily removed to facilitate proper town planning. The official, asked the bill collectors to properly collect the taxes and issue show-cause notices to defaulters, failing which criminal action would be taken.
