Delhi News: This time the anti-encroachment drive near Delhi's ITO has not been carried out by the officials of the PWD department but by the DDA.
New Delhi: After the anti-encroachment campaign of DDA in Mehrauli, Delhi, the country’s capital, today i.e. on Saturday, anti-encroachment action is going on near ITO. This time, not the Delhi Development Authority but the Central Public Works Department (PWD) has taken action against the encroachment.
While carrying out action against encroachment (PWD Anti Encroachment Drive), a temple and a mosque located in the busiest and Lutyen’s Zone area of the capital (Delhi) have been demolished. The local people protested against this, but under the protection of the Delhi Police, the campaign against the illegal construction of the PDWD department team continued.
Before carrying out the action of encroachment in Delhi’s ITO, the Central Public Works Department had also issued a notice to the concerned parties. Not only this, the PWD department had also put up hoardings a few days ago to remove the encroachment. In the order issued in the name of necessary information, it is clearly written on the board of PWD that this land belongs to the Central Public Works Department. Any encroachment on this is a punishable offence. This information is being issued by the Executive Engineer of PWD.
Recently, Delhi Development Authority had launched a campaign against illegal construction for five days in Mehrauli’s Ghousia Slum Colony. Hundreds of multi-storey buildings were demolished by the DDA during the anti-encroachment drive. After heavy protests, on the orders of LG Vinay Saxena, the DDA decided to stop the campaign. Now this matter is pending in the Delhi High Court.
