PANCHKULA: Haryana Assembly Speaker Gian Chand Gupta on Wednesday warned the Panchkula administration and police department officials of action if illegal encroachments are not removed from the city.

Gupta was chairing a meeting with the Panchkula administration officials at his office in Haryana Assembly, where he said that “unless action is taken against police and other concerned officers, the problem will not be solved.”

After the meeting, Panchkula DC Sushil Sarwan assured of a special anti-encroachment drive and visible difference in the city within one month.

City Mayor Kulbhushan Goyal, municipal corporation commissioner Sachin Gupta, deputy commissioner of police (security, law and order) Nikita Khattar and HUDA Estate Officer Manav Malik were also present in the meeting.

During the meet, Speaker Gian Chand Gupta also formed an administrative committee under the chairmanship of the DC to free the city from encroachment.

This committee includes MC Commissioner, DCP and EO HUDA. He said that along with removing encroachment, the interests of small workers who earn their living as street vendors also have to be taken care of.

“Vending zones have been made in almost every sector of the city. Retailers can run shops in these vending zones. At present, about 700 sites are lying vacant in various vending zones. Special drives will have to be conducted to remove encroachments from Sector-7, Sector-9, Sector-11, Sector-15 and Sector-20,” Gupta said

Gupta added that Panchkula cannot be allowed to become a city of slums, and gave strict instructions to DCP Nikita Khattar to remove illegal slums from the city.
