ENCROACHMENTS are gift even in small towns like Shikarpur.

most of the stores are using government assets for their business.

you will see men solving motorcycles on the corner of a avenue while a motel manager is coping with his clients on the equal strip of avenue.

It does not depend whether or not you are on a bike or driving a automobile or a truck or a donkey cart — every body suffers at the roads due to encroachments.

Lakhidar Chowk, that is one of the town’s roundabouts, is blocked for the duration of the day because of visitors and encroachments. I urge the authorities to fix this hassle.
