Time and again the matter of encroachment on BHEL land in Shivaliknagar and Tibdi area has surfaced but the township administrators are turning a deaf ear to the problem. Recently, the foundation for a building was laid by a scrap dealer on BHEL land where phase V of Shivaliknagar is proposed but no action has been taken by the administrators, alleged a local activist.
Haridwar-based activist Aditya Sharma has alleged that one Gulshan Ansari, a scrap dealer dug foundation for a building on the vacant ground on the back side of Chinmaya degree college.
The land adjacent to the HRDA certified Inderlok colony on one side and Rawli Mehdood village on the other side is being encroached upon by some business man for construction purposes.
While the BHEL office bearers are passing the buck on each other for taking action, the dealer smartly covered his foundation by planting some trees.
When this correspondent tried to contact the township administrator Naveen Lunia, his phone was found switched off. In a written complaint to the BHEL general manager of Human Resource, Sharma has complained that some BHEL officials are sheltering the trader and not taking action against him.
Speaking to The Pioneer, activist Aditya Sharma said, “I was asked to approach BHEL Sarkari Grah Samiti which is looking after construction of the phase V of Shivaliknagar to take action in four days but nothing happened. Now the person concerned is not responding.”
Head of BHEL Sarkari Grah Samiti, Aftab Khan told this correspondent that the matter was being undertaken by the BHEL township administrator, and whatever action is needed, will be taken by him alone.
