Chandigarh January 31, 2013. Sh. Satya Pal Jain, Ex-City MP and National Incharge of the Legal & Legislative Cell of the BJP has strongly condemned the demolitions of residential houses carried out by the Congress (I) controlled Chandigarh Administration in various parts of the city, including Sector 45 and Manimajra, today and during the last few days.
Mr. Jain today visited Manimajra, where the Chandigarh Administration demolished hundreds of residential houses in the morning, and listened to the grievances of the affected families.
Mr. Jain said that it seems that now the Railway Engine of the Central Congress (I) government has started running over the houses of the poor people in the city instead of running on railway tracks.
Mr. Jain said that whenever the Central Congress (I) Minister and other senior congress (I) leaders issue statements that they will not allow any house to be demolished, the next day officers are sent by their own government to demolish the houses. He said that the area where houses were demolished today looks like it has been struck by a severe earthquake. He wondered as to where have all those Congress (I) leaders vanished today, who have been issuing such statements.
Mr. Jain demanded that no house of any poor person be demolished unless he has been given alternative residential accommodation. He assured the victim families of his full support to them in their struggle and that he will take up their case with the Union Home Minister.
