Goel meets Urban Development Minister Hardip Puri to discuss issue of Sealing

MoS Parliamentary Affairs and former Delhi BJP Chief Sh. Vijay Goel today called on Union Minister for Urban Development Sh. HardipPuri to discuss the burning issue of sealing. Goel stated that the Monitoring Committee is going ahead of its jurisdiction and not following due process of law. The situation is alarming and has created an environment of panic and fear among the traders and various stakeholders.

Goel said, “It is sad that one hand we are witnessing the sealing drive as per the Supreme Court’s Monitoring Committee decision but on the other hand there is rampant illegal construction across Delhi. Goel stated that it is vital that those responsible for allowing illegal use of space are equally held responsible and strict action is taken against them whether officials or engineers. Goel stated that there must be an advertisement to enlighten masses on the facts and myths of sealing. 

Goel further stated that as there are multiple civic bodies and agencies, there is lack of coordination and multiplicity of decision making is leading to a chaotic and confusing situation. Goel stressed on the need to initiate a Mega Plan by the Centre that would help in all-round development of the Capital irrespective of roles of various civic bodies that exist at present.

Goel also said that it is important to check roads based on commercial, residential or mixed land category and conversion rate must be decided accordingly. He added that in case of mixed land use, the construction of shopping centres must be given the same FAR as commercial areas.

Earlier, Goel had also written to LG Anil Baijal asking him to check if the sealing drive in Capital can be stopped for the time being. Goel in his letter to LG Baijal asked him to hold a meeting with Delhi CM and all the commissioners of MCD in this regard and take necessary steps.
