Hon’ble Chief Secretary
To safeguard public property it is the responsibility of every citizen. Being vigilant citizen I urged you kindly direct the Deputy Commissioner Jalandhar to form the team of Revenue Officials under his supervision to check the record and conduct door to door survey of Govt land which is illegally occupied in VPO Shekhe, Kotla Road, Jalandhar. Authorities should also check the total financial loss of the Govt. No single construction was demolished by the District authorities after the case was highlighted. Govt land cannot be allowed to be encroached upon. Taking cognizance of the Hon’ble High Court Orders in number of CWP (PIL), local authorities should order to demolish illegal construction on Govt land.
Hon’ble Justice Punjab & Haryana High Court AB Chaudhari has already passed the orders related to vacate encroachment of Govt land in Jalandhar District. Kindly order to take concrete action to take back Govt land from persons and land mafia who are in illegal possession of lands belonging to the Center / State of Punjab.
Kindly crackdown the nexus of land mafia and look into a plea alleging construction on encroached Govt Lands, Provincial Govt Lands, Nazool Lands, Evacuee Land which is situated in District Jalandhar.
(To recover the encroached Govt Land which is illegally occupied and developed by the Land Mafia in Jalandhar. And To clear the Center Govt Land which is encroached in Village Shekhe, Kotla Road Adj Paradise Colony, Kangniwal (Industrial Township), Jaitowali, Mubabarkpur, Dhada, Chak Hussain, Nangal Salempur Near Lamba Pind and other areas of Jalandhar City. Land mafia who are hand in glove with Revenue officials sold Govt land worth Crores of Rupees.)
Even the Pollution Control Board is not taking appropriate action against violation of environmental norms which is a criminal offence. Municipal Corporation Jalandhar and PSPCL are equally responsible for providing amenities to those who are illegally occupants. Accountability should be fixed for concerned officials.
It is the matter of thinking that with Agreement on Affidavit of Rs 25 Sale Deeds are done. Kindly appoint Special Investigation Team under the supervision of High Officials to Conduct the inquiry and ensure speedy digitization of Govt Land which is vacant and which part is illegally encroached and sold. Land Mafia in league with Revenue Officials over the past several years taking advantage of Encroach and Sold Govt Land. Large Chunk of Govt Land has been encroached by the land mafia. The Government should depute the team to keep watch and ensure it is not to be encroached upon again. In gross violation the land mafia has developed colonies and commercial complexes and is doing this trade practice in intervals for the past 20 years. It is therefore requested that the land reserved for common purposes should be scrutinized and be allotted for public interest.
Seeking your intervention and speedy consideration on my complaint.
