Delhi Live News: A signboard of Akbar Road in Lutyen’s Delhi was vandalised Thursday and posters were put up on them, declaring the stretch as ‘Samrat Hemu Vikramaditya Marg’. The Hindu Sena claimed it was behind the act.
A senior official of the New Delhi Municipal Council (NDMC), under which the area falls, said it has removed the poster and complained to Delhi Police to register a FIR. DCP (New Delhi district) Deepak Yadav said an FIR under relevant sections of the law is being registered.
Hindu Sena president Vishnu Gupta claimed responsibility and said the organisation demands renaming of the road after the “bravest sons of Bharat Mata Raja Hem Chandra Vikramaditya, also known Raja Hemu…, who ruled Delhi for a short but significant period of time”.
More than 60 parents of primary and middle school children in Delhi have written to members of the Delhi Disaster Management Authority (DDMA), requesting that young students be permitted to visit at least once a week for educational and recreational activities until schools reopen for them.
The DDMA in a meeting on September 29 had decided that schools may be allowed to reopen for children in nursery to Class VIII only after the festive season, which is after November 4 when Diwali will be celebrated. They had been allowed to reopen for classes IX-XII from September 1.
