Shop-owners demand alternative sites

By Our Staff Reporter

NEW DELHI, DEC. 16. The Naraina Ring Road Shopkeepers' Association today met the Chief Minister, Sheila Dikshit, under the leadership of the senior Congress leader and Delhi Pradesh Congress Committee vice-president, Raj Kumar Kohli, and urged her to direct the Delhi Development Authority to ensure alternative plots to 300 shopowners who will stand affected by the demolition to be undertaken to widen the road on this stretch.

Mr. Kohli along with the general secretary of the association, Anoop Vashisth, urged the Chief Minister to direct the DDA to act promptly and make adequate arrangements to allot small alternative sites to all those who stand affected by the acquisition of their properties.

Stating that they were in favour of widening of Ring Road on this stretch as the Naraina area had become a big bottleneck affecting smooth movement of traffic on Ring Road, the association members said that they were given to understand that plots had already been earmarked for them at a particular site. However, till date no allotment has been made despite demolition orders being issued for next week.
