Sewer lines in unauthorised colonies soon

Govt sanctions Rs 230 crore, tenders out next week

The city government has come out with a comprehensive plan to lay sewer lines in most of the unauthorised colonies in Delhi.

Parliamentary secretary to chief minister Mukesh Sharma on Monday said Rs 230 crore has been sanctioned to lay sewer lines in Bindapaur- Mohan Garden group of colonies under Uttam Nagar Assembly area.

“Tenders will be issued by next week and work will be completed at the earliest,” Sharma told Deccan Herald.

The sewer lines will also be laid in Sainik Vihar, Maharani Enclave and Rajan Vihar, he said and added that the lines will be connected with trunk sewer lines at Dwarka and further with an interceptor.

“Bindapur and Mohan Garden group of over 100 colonies are set to see all round development. Two community centres at a cost of Rs 15 crore, which will have multi-storeys, lifts and spacious halls for the social gatherings and marriage functions, has been sanctioned,” said Sharma.

He accused the BJP ruled municipalities of politicising the issue of finalisation of layout plans of unauthorised colonies.

He said the BJP is committed to derail the process of regularisation of colonies as it will benefit only the poor and middle class families and not the capitalists.

“Let BJP play all the dirty tricks. But it cannot stop the development process initiated by chief minister Sheila Dikshit. We are committed to develop these colonies,” said Sharma.

“Our government has even allowed utilisation of amount released from MLA LAD (local area development) fund for development activities in all newly legalised colonies,” he added.
