The residents and traders met the DC N Jayram this morning and brought to his notice the Stay order issued by the Hon high court, which states “Stay on dispossession till the next date of hearing.”
The DC categorically said that no action would be initiated on the properties which have got a stay from the court.
In the Writ petition filed by the residents and traders in the high court they have made an appeal, that they are in favor of development and it is the need of the hour, but the same must be implemented as per the laid down procedure and law. It has also come to the notice that Corporation commissioner has spoken to media persons stating he will remove all the encroachments.
Speaking to AAB, Advocate Ashok Potdar said that, the properties which will be dispossessed if the master plan is implemented are very old and were constructed way back in 1940’s when there was no CDP plan in force. Hence terming all buildings as encroachments is not fair and also not according to law.
