Bulldozer in Shaheen Bagh: The bulldozer of the Municipal Corporation, starting from Jahangirpuri in Delhi, reached Shaheen Bagh today against the encroachment in illegal constructions in the capital Delhi.
The exercise to remove the encroachment was started in Shaheen Bagh this morning amid heavy protests, but there was no need to run the bulldozer and the bulldozer returned without moving.
For this, a large number of police and paramilitary force personnel were deployed in the area. On getting information about this action, local MLA and Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) MLA Amanatullah Khan reached the spot and called this action wrong.
Amanatullah Khan said that there was a toilet in front of the mosque, which I got it removed with my own money. Wherever there is encroachment in the entire assembly, MCD people tell me, I will get it removed myself. They are spoiling the atmosphere by coming here, politicization is being done.
According to the information, on the demand of South Delhi Municipal Corporation (SDMC), Delhi Police today asked MCD to provide force to remove encroachments in the Shaheen Bagh area. Earlier, the Southern Corporation could not get the police force to act on the encroachment, due to which the action of the bulldozer was postponed till May 8.
Now the police force is also going from Shaheen Bagh.
Action has been stopped by MCD in Shaheen Bagh for the time being. The bulldozer returned without leaving amidst heavy protests
