Trespassing - a severe headache for city residents

Written by Meghalaya Times. Posted in Front Page

Be it one’s private residence, public office, government bungalow existing in between parallel lanes, streets, crisscrossed staircases, terrains et al people here don’t care about the privacy of the buildings they are trespassing while taking the shortcut. And besides trespassing, another ugly sight is every nook and corner of the city are home to unruly youth engaged in unproductive talking while blocking pedestrians’ path. The yearn of the city’s youth for such quiet “corners” cannot go unnoticed as it is easier to nab their activities given their omnipresence.
