‘Tent fever’

Sir,

Nowadays, ‘tent fever’ is spreading rapidly. Regardless of how busy a road may be, anybody can decide to erect a tent to organise a wedding or other social gathering there. The road adjacent to Sir Syed University of Engineering and Technology was recently blocked by setting up a tent right in the middle of the road.

To top it all, a police mobile and personnel were there to ‘guard’ the illegal act. The same day, another lane close to my house was blocked with a tent and a few days later the same act was repeated near the entrance of the university.

It seems that no one is taking notice of this illegality and anyone can block roads as and when he wants. I appeal to the authorities concerned to resolve the problem at the earliest and bar people from doing this and restrict them to holding events at designated places only.
