The Municipal Town Planning Wing (MTP) demolished an illegal colony at Fateh Singh Nagar in the Central constituency area on Friday evening. The coloniser had constructed the streets and walls on the two-and-a-half acre land and demarked the plots. A team of the MTP wing led by Municipal Town Planner Narinder Sharma, along with police team, reached the spot at afternoon. The walls and roads have been demolished and big potholes have been dug with the machine. Narinder Sharma, MTP said, “We will not tolerate any violation. The colony should be passed under the rules and regulations of the state government. We have initiated a drive to remove the illegal buildings. We urge residents to construct buildings only after due approval of building plan. Otherwise, MC will take action and demolish the illegal buildings.” The team of MTP wing comprised Assistant Town Planner (ATP) Varinder Mohan and building inspector Navdeep Kumar. TNS
