The recent BIWTA and RHD drives to remove illegal structures are no doubt commendable. There is no doubt that these drives are needed to save our rivers from encroachment and to free the footpaths for pedestrians' use. But what do the authorities do before illegal structures are built on riverbanks and footpaths are grabbed? So much money is wasted when a single concrete structure is demolished. Why not act before?
