Notification of 351 roads: Delhi govt sends file to LG

NEW DELHI: The much awaited file pertaining to the survey report about change of land use (CLU) of 351 roads was sent to Lieutenant Governor Anil Baijal by the Delhi government on Wednesday.
According to government sources, as soon as the file pertaining to the 351 roads was put up before Delhi Urban Development Minister Satyendar Jain, it was sent to the LG for his approval.
Once the LG's nod is obtained, the survey report would be presented before the Supreme Court for its approval, an official said.
He added that if the apex court gives its nod to the report, the Delhi Urban Development department will issue a notification putting all 351 roads under commercial and mixed-use categories. The survey report had been 'pending' with the Municipal Corporations of Delhi since 2006.
Following the development, the BJP said that the Aam Aadmi Party-led Delhi government had finally given it to pressure to give nod to the file on the 351 roads.
The issue was recently at the centre of a tussle between the BJP-led MCDs and the ruling AAP, with both accusing each other of not doing anything to save traders from their properties being sealed on these roads.
"Sending the file pertaining to 351 roads to Hon'ble LG today, as soon as we recd the proposal from MCDs. As soon as LG's approval is obtained, it will be presented before SC for its approva," Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal tweeted on Wednesday.
Last month, Kejriwal had said that on 351 roads, there was no sealing yet, but despite this, the BJP was raising this issue again and again and "doing policitcs" over sealing.
Leader of Opposition in Delhi Assembly Vijender Gupta had said that the AAP should apologise to the people of Delhi for "doing politics" over this issue.
"Our struggle has borne fruit. The Kejriwal govt kept sitting on the file to notify 351 roads, has finally given its nod because of opposition demand. Public had to suffer for months while AAP played politics at their cost. They must apologise for their political depravity," Gupta tweeted on Wednesday.
