BJP calls gazette notification on sealing/demolition bluff on peop
New Delhi, Sep 11 (UNI) Accusing the Congress government of bluffing the people of Delhi through the 'gazette notification' on sealing and demolition, the BJP today said the order does not bring any relief or succour to Delhiites and instead would bring back the dreaded 'Inspector Raj' days.
Addressing mediapersons here this evening, senior BJP leader Vijay Goel alleged the notification was an eyewash and a fraud on the people of Delhi as it did not address the core issue of demolition and sealing which was to save the people from largescale destruction.
''A careful study of the notification shows that those shops which are spared in 'land misuse' would be sealed in 'unauthorised construction' and the Damocles sword would still be hanging on those in DDA colonies which has not been stated clearly.'' As per the notification, if doctors, lawyers, architects etc are allowed in colonies, why aren't others pursuing professions like property dealing, palmistry, astrology be allowed, asked the former Union minister.
''Also, every year mixed land use fee will have to be paid which will bring back the rule of Inspectors giving them the authority to sneak into our houses anytime, which could be a nightmare for anyone.'' This was a prelude to an era of bribery, where money would rule the roost, he added.
''We demand that a practical approach be adopted to deal with this situation which concerns most of the people of Delhi and their livelihood. The court should be told in clear terms about the havoc the present order would bring and subsequently a pragmatic solution be thrashed out,'' he said.
Mr Goel also questioned the 'legality' of asking schools, banks, nursing homes etc to provide accommodation for cars and other vehicles.
