Rajiv | 06 Jun 2014

Hitting hard at Jammu Municipal Corporation, Shri Ram Sena Jammu and Kashmir state president Rajiv Mahajan blames JMC authorities for flouting norms in respect of illegal constructions in Jammu city and changing the status of public utilities in to business complexes. Mahajan demanded JMC Commissioner to come up with a public statement in this regard with immediate effect.

 Rajiv Mahajan alleged that the business of illegal constructions and changing the status of public utility spaces in Jammu is very well flourishing under the dispensation of present Municipal Commissioner Kiran Wattal.

Rajiv Mahajan mentioned that earlier the basement at Karan Market used as parking place for visitors to the market was changed into shopping complex in connivance with JMC authorities in contravention of buildings and Shopping Complex construction rules. Later Yoga Center at Karan Market was changed into Hotel in total violation of Building construction rules. The hotel "Vardhman Classic" that came up at place of Yoga Center is all set to operation at present.

Mahajan alleged that JMC authorities in order to give undue benefit to blue- eyed boys flouted all norms of Building rules and facilitate illegal constructions. Transaction of money and involvement of political persons can't be ruled out in the matter, Mahajan added.   

Mahajan asks Municipal Commissioner, Jammu Kiran Wattal as to why he is silent on the matter and did not issue any clarification in this regard. Mahajan asks Commissioner JMC to come up with a public statement on illegal constructions and change of status of public utility places in to Commercial complexes at an earliest to clear the uncertainty brewing up in the minds of general public. The silence on part of Commissioner JMC on the subject indicates involvement of JMC Commissioner, which is not good for Commissioner's reputation,  Mahajan added.
