Nagpur: Bowing to the vociferous demands, the Guardian Minister Chandrashekhar Bawankule has directed the NMC and NIT officials to immediately remove chicken and meat shops situated at Mhalgi Nagar Square on Ring Road. The chicken and meat shops have turned the lives of residents miserable as they have to continuously bear with nauseatic stench, filth and increased criminal activities. The citizens have been demanding riddance of the shops from Mhalgi Nagar Square since long time.
The directives were issued by Bawankule during a meeting held at Ravi Bhavan on Thursday to discuss various issues concerning the citizens. MLA Sudhakar Kohale was also present in the meeting. The Minister was also apprised about a hotel dumping filth and garbage at the basement of Satyam Plaza in Mhalgi Nagar area. Bawankule ordered the NMC’s Health Department to remove the encroachment and take action against the hotel under police protection.
Wild animal attacks:
Bawankule asked the Forest Department to probe and submit a detailed report over a poor farmer being killed in wild animal attack in Mauda Tehsil. The State Government will try to extend financial help to the deceased farmer. He also said that Nagpur Metro Region Development Authority has issued notices to residents of Ranala Bhilgaon in Kamptee Taluka over illegal constructions. The notice is just a procedure and that no houses will be demolished, he assured.
A delegation of farmers led by BJP leader Nitin Rathi met Bawankule and informed him that some parts of Kelvad Taluka have not been declared drought hit. The Revenue Department said that since no criteria could be applicable necessary for drought like situation, the drought was declared in these parts.
The Guardian Minister assured 132 hutment dwellers of Dahegaon village in MIHAN project that ownership rights of land measuring 1000 sq ft will be distributed to them soon. Directives in this regard have been issued to the concerned department. The issue of remaining ten hutment dwellers will be resolved within a week.
According to recently issued notification of the government, ownership rights will be distributed to the families who have encroached upon government lands before 2011. However, ownership pattas could not be given to houses on jhudpi jungles at this moment as a petition is pending in Supreme Court. Necessary action will be taken after Supreme Court ruling, Bawankule said.
