The residents of Sai Kunj, Phase-3, New Palam Vihar, are mulling to take to the streets fearing action by the Haryana Urban Development Authority (Huda), which is learnt to have submitted an affidavit in the Punjab and Haryana High Court regarding the rehabilitation plan for people displaced by the Northern Peripheral Road (NPR) project.
The residents of Sai Kunj alleged that they were not satisfied with Huda’s plan to acquire their plots and relocate NPR-affected people at Sai Kunj.
“The plan to relocate NPR-affected by displacing 100 families of Sai Kunj is not feasible,” alleged Azad Kataria, a resident.
SS Dhillon, financial commissioner-cum-principal secretary to Haryana government, and Huda administrator Praveen Kumar inspected the NPR at New Palam Vihar to inspect the rehabilitation plan at Sai Kunj. The two officials assured the NPR-affected people of allocating plots similar to the ones in Sector 110-A, where Sai Kunj falls.
“This is wrong that Huda has a plan to dismantle houses at Sai Kunj to rehabilitate NPR oustees. We would not do this. We also won't allow any new construction at any vacant plot,” said the Huda administrator.
Sai Kunj falls under Huda’s Sector 110-A.
The officials had adopted a plan to acquire land at the sector as the government had slapped land acquisition notices on nearly 100 families two years ago.
