Lt. Governor should order judicial enquiry into the incident of Darya Ganj Building collapse - Vijender Gupta
BJP has directly held Delhi Government responsible for the death of seven innocent persons in the collapse of two buildings in Chandni Mahal area of Darya Ganj and demanded for the payment of compensation of five lakh rupees to the family members of the deceased and two lakh rupees each to the injured persons. BJP Delhi Pradesh President Shri Vijender Gupta has demanded the Lt. Governor of Delhi to order judicial enquiry into this case so that the guilty persons may be exposed.
Due to the connivance between the building mafia, administration and the Police, unauthorised construction is going on. Delhi Police are also aware of the fact that unauthorised construction is being done in the old area. Even today thousands of people are living dangerouslyy in these buildings. Not only this high tension power wires are in front of these houses which are grave danger for the residents in this area. Shri Gupta has demanded for removal of this high tension wires and putting them underground so that the residents may be saved.
Some days ago there was an incident of building collapse in Lalita Park due to illegal constructions in which about 70 persons had died. Even at that time the Disaster Management Department of Delhi Government seemed to be helpless. Ambulance and Fire Brigade could not reach the place of incident and yesterday two buildings collapsed in which seven people died on the spot. Three dozen persons are seriously injured and being treated in the Hospital.
The lacunae in the Master Plan of Delhi should be removed so that illegal construction by the building mafia may be curbed. He has demanded that a special task force for walled city should be formed immediately so that such tragic incident may not happen again for which comprehensive plan should be framed.
