    what about loyal world in Vani Vilas Mohalla? they have shops outside on the pavement and force shoppers to park on the motorable road. They also don’t have a parking space, causing traffic disruption throughout the day. Who gave them permission to operate like this? And why is MCC turning a blind eye to Loyal World?
