Backing Chief Minister Sheila Dikshit's demand, DPCC chief Rambabu Sharma on Monday said the list of all unauthorised constructions up to 1954 should be put up on the website of the civic body.

The Chief Minister had demanded that the list of 18,000 illegal structures submitted to the Delhi High Court be put up on the MCD's website.

Sharma also demanded that a Central technical committee be formed byTuesday evening to review building norms in Delhi and that a Congress Legislature Party meeting be called to discuss the issue of unauthorised constructions in the city.

"There is talk of putting up on the MCD's website the list of 18,271 illegal constructions. As DPCC chief, I would like to go beyond that and demand that all unauthorised constructions that have come up since 1954 should be listed on the website," the DPCC chief told a press conference.

Dikshit had on Saturday got the Centre's backing on her demand that the list of 18,000 illegal structures be made public, with Union Urban Development Minister S Jaipal Reddy supporting the idea.

The Chief Minister's demand has, however, been opposed by her own party's Councillors led by Mayor Satbir Singh who say it would only create chaos.
