Despite trying too hard to remove illegal encroachments from the roadsides and vacant lands, Municipal Corporation of Gurgaon (MCG) hasn't met with any success as illegal encroachments sprout again in days following the eviction. A nursery in Sikanderpur was destroyed by the corporation from its vacant land few months back but it has been developed again.
"Months back, MCG evacuated the land encroached by a nursery; it did some temporary fencing around it and in a few weeks these people again occupied the land after breaking the fencing." MCG spokesperson alleged.
On Monday again, the corporation removed the nursery, spread illegally over one acre of its 7-8 acre land in Sikanderpur. DTP Raman Sharma instructed Executive engineer ND Vashisht to cover the land with a strong cemented wall so that in future no one can again take illegal possession of the land.
Even Mayor Vimal Yadav suggested that corporation should use this land to build office for local councilors, a demand they have been making for a long time now. "I was informed from sources that corporation will be installing uni-poles to save the land but I think this will not work and people again can occupy this land. I suggested it should be used for the office for our councilors," Yadav said.
Last week also MCG removed roadside vendors who again and again occupy the roads in the city even after paying fines – thus spoiling all MCG efforts.
