Early Times Report
anantnag, Dec 13: Illegal constructions on state and agriculture land go unabated in South Kashmir's Anantnag district as authorities fail to take action against the encroachers and violators.
Violators, as per residents, are raising constructions on state and agriculture land in the district particularly all along the new and old national highway. The constructions on agriculture land are also coming up on Anantnag-Pahalgam road.
They said that violators are take undue advantage of the situation and raising constructions without seeking permission from municipal authorties and other concerned agencies.
Locals from multiple villages of Anantnag informed Early Times that influential people were also encroaching state land in various areas of the district.
The official apathy can be gauged from the fact that a group of people have even grabbed an irrigation canal in front of Police Station Anantnag by constructing a shopping complex over it.
"Land measuring 7 marals actually belonging to Irrigation Department was encroached and few shops were constructed on it. However surprisingly municipal Council Anantnag didn't stop the encroacher neither conveyed the same thing to other agencies," official sources told Early Times.
However, Executive Officer Municipal Council Anantnag Mir Mohd Ismail assured that the shops constructed on encroached land will be demolished. "Court has stayed it but we are hopeful that same be will vacated tomorrow and surely shops constructed on state land will be demolished," he said.
They said that in Bijbehara area of district, an influential politician is also constructing a shopping complex over an irrigation canal and the Revenue Department despite knowing it hasn't yet taking any action against the politician.
In another case, a group of influential people have encroached part of graveyard by constructing a shopping complex on it. Land Revenue Ac t, they said, is being violated in day broad light as constructions on agriculture land alongside Khanabal-Pahalgam road are being raised.
"Violators are enjoying the support of authorities and top officials of the district," they alleged.
