Even as Deputy Chief Minister Ajit Pawar has given PCMC the go-ahead to demolish illegal structures in Pimpri-Chinchwad,the Shiv Sena has demanded action against officials who have allowed illegal constructions on land reserved for civic amenities in the development plan.
Shiv Sena corporator Seema Savle said as many as 10,676 illegal structures have come up on reserved land. I have received information from PCMC through an RTI application, she said. Savle alleged that these constructions came up with active connivance of the civic officials.
How have buildings and hotels come up on reserved land? Obviously,the officials allowed them for monetary consideration. We demand that action should first be taken against officials who are responsible for such encroachments, she said.
Savles demand comes after Pawar gave the PCMC the nod on Saturday to demolish encroachments on reserved land and those that have come up after March 31,2012.
