He further alleged that cart pushers are responsible for stealing of manhole covers a situation that is an open secret.
“These cart pushers and their unknown collaborators are also responsible for the recurring stealing of manhole covers, an act which endangers peoples’ lives and public safety on our roads”
The State Government directed law enforcement agencies to arrest anyone who tries to violate the ban
