Ayodhya residents facing demolition of houses by ADA meet Akhilesh

Tuesday, 09 August 2022 | PNS | Lucknow

The residents of Ayodhya facing the onslaught of demolition of their residential buildings by the Ayodhya Development Authority met the leader of opposition in UP Assembly, Akhilesh Yadav, here on Monday and sought his intervention for protecting their assets. 

They demanded that the illegal drive by the development authority for demolishing their houses be immediately halted.

Most of the residents facing the wrath of demolition are retired and serving officers of the Indian army. The wives of the serving army men were also part of the delegation which met Akhilesh Yadav, the former chief minister of UP.

They told the Samajwadi Party chief that they purchased the plots from their savings and even borrowed money to construct the house and suddenly the Ayodhya Development Authority was saying that their houses were illegal and unauthorised and had issued notice for demolition.

Several houses have already been demolished.

The residents told Akhilesh Yadav that in revenue records the land where they had constructed the houses was registered as housing land and the Ayodhya Nagar Nigam had provided all municipal facilities like sewage and water. They said they were regularly paying the electricity bills and municipal taxes.   

The delegation was led by former SP MLA from Ayodhya, Pawan Pandey. The SP chief assured the delegation that he would look into the matter.
