Earlier, when a complaint was made about illegal construction, it was said that age-old pipes and banyan trees are being cut down. The municipality, which removed the number of closed temples on the roads in Surat, did not pay heed to this complaint and now these illegal builders have cut down trees to build a religious place on government land in Chowk Bazar.
