New Delhi: Bulldozer action is possible on illegal encroachment in South Delhi today. MCD may remove encroachment in Shaheen Bagh area today. According to the notice, SDMC team can work on illegal occupation in G-Block.
In many parts of South Delhi, this action of the first phase of the Municipal Corporation will continue from May 4 to May 13. In a letter to the South and South East DCPs, it has been said that on May 9, a bulldozer will run in the Shaheen Bagh area. For this, the corporation has also demanded adequate force from the police.
According to the action plan of South MCD, action will be taken against illegal encroachment and encroachment will be removed from Shaheen Bagh G Block to Jasola and Jasola Nala to Kalindi Kunj Park on Monday.
Let us inform that earlier, after removing the encroachments in Jahangirpuri and Tughlakabad of Delhi, bulldozers were to be run in the areas of Shaheen Bagh on Thursday i.e. May 5, corporation officials and bulldozers also reached the spot, but there was no police presence there. Because of this the campaign had to be postponed.
Significantly, Shaheen Bagh comes under the jurisdiction of SDMC and in December 2019, a long sit-in was held in this area in protest against the amended citizenship law. This sit-in demonstration ended in March 2020 after the outbreak of the COVID epidemic. Four days after the communal violence in Jahangirpuri area, the North Delhi Municipal Corporation (NDMC) launched an anti-encroachment drive. The Supreme Court had ordered the NDMC to maintain status quo.
