Former Congress MP Mahabal Mishra and his supporters forcibly opened an elevated corridor between Vikaspuri and Meera Bagh on Saturday, a day before chief minister Arvind Kejriwal was scheduled to formally inaugurate it, prompting PWD to file a police complaint.

In a statement, the former West Delhi MP said he along with hundreds of party workers inaugurated the 3.4-km flyover from Vikaspuri to Meera Bagh as the Congress party had allotted funds for its construction.

A senior official said the Public Works Department (PWD) has filed a written police complaint for forcibly inaugurating the elevated corridor, which is a part of the 22-km signal-free Vikaspuri-Wazirabad project.

“The PWD has filed police complaint against miscreants who illegally tried to intrude Vikaspuri Elevated Road to be inaugurated by the Delhi chief minister tomorrow,” the official said.

The corridor will make five intersections on the stretch signal-free, following which residents of Jankapuri, Vikaspuri, Tilak Nagar, Jawalaheri and Pachim Vihar will be benefited the most.
