In Moradabad, Uttar Pradesh, on the boundary of Ambedkar Park located near Majhola police station on Delhi Road, the administration started bulldozers at around 7.30 pm on Thursday night. Some part of a room built in Ambedkar Park is also broken. In protest, the people of Dr. Ambedkar Jan Kalyan Samiti created a ruckus. The administration has done this demolition to make way for the agricultural defense unit to be built behind the park.
Ambedkar Park is a few steps away from Majhola Police Station on Delhi Highway. This area adjacent to the city comes under Manoharpur Gram Sabha. On Thursday, around 6.30 pm, SDM Sadar Prashant Tiwari reached here with the team of tehsil and police and instructed to demolish the boundary of the park. Seeing the bulldozers being used on the boundary, the officials of the Ambedkar Committee came to the spot. He opposed this action. The boundary was demolished around 7.30 pm with the help of police amid protests.
Will sue SDM – Lekhpal
Advocate Tara Singh, general secretary of Ambedkar Jan Kalyan Samiti, says that Ambedkar Park has 2050 square meters of land in the papers. The park is built on the same land. The administration did not even give them any notice before breaking the boundary and the room built in the park. He said that against this unilateral action, the committee will file a case against SDM Prashant Tiwari and Lekhpal Tehzeeb Alam.
Have taken government land, will build a boundary: SDM
SDM Sadar Prashant Tiwari says that there is government land in Ambedkar Park and a builder’s boundary built near it. An eight meter wide path has to be made to reach the agricultural defense unit behind the park. For this, three meters of land has been taken from Ambedkar Park. While the rest of the land has been taken by breaking the boundary of the builder. The SDM said that the protest and uproar of the people is wrong. He said that he had already agreed with the villagers. Despite that, some people raised a ruckus. The SDM said that after taking the land up to three meters width, the administration will get the boundary of the park built as before within two days.
