Tribune News Service

Jalandhar, July 18

Members of the Surya Enclave Extension Welfare Association will hold a dharna outside the Improvement Trust office in Jalandhar from 10 am to 2 pm on July 19. The protest will be held against the failure of the Improvement Trust to grant them the possession of their lands for the almost 10 years.

On July 15, the members of the association also wrote to the DC Jalandhar to seek permission for the same.

They wrote, “We, the allottees of residential plots of the Improvement Trust Jalandhar Scheme Surya Enclave Etxn.94.97 acre 2011/2016 are the worst sufferers. We have not been handed over the possession of our plots. No development has been carried out by the Improvement Trust Jalandhar due to illegal encroachments on our plots in C block and park/link roads/main 120 road connecting Domoria Bridge to the national highway.”

“Therefore, we will stage a symbolic dharna in front of the Improvement Trust, Jalandhar, tomorrow, from 10 am to 2 pm. We also want interest on the amount. We shall observe the Covid-19 protocol.”

Manohar Lal Sehgal, an aggrieved senior citizen said, “The encroachment on my plot has been removed but the 45-feet road from Domoriah Bridge to C Block has been badly encroached upon. Even the parks have been encroached. There is no drinking water or sewerage facility. Our money is stuck for the past 10 years.”
