Administration has faced stern demonstration from locals of the area when UMC tried to seize the illegal construction going on the lake side today. Few residents including the house owner alleged that administration is biased on taking actions against illegal construction.

A construction was going on at the house of Bhagwanlal Gehlot at Chandpol from last many days, as the house are situated on the lake shore, it comes under no-construction zone and any construction work on the building is prohibited.

A team from Udaipur Municipal Corporation under the direction of Municipal Commissioner Himmat Singh Barhat reached the location to stop the construction work and demolish the building.

Soon, some of the locals and relatives of the house owner surrounded UMC Commissioner and asked them to stop the action. Commissioner said that it is a legal action; some people allegedly attacked the demolition team.

An additional police force was called to handle the situation and a report against unknown people is lodged by UMC Commissioner for disrupting government work and assaulting government employees.

A local politician protested the demolition and said that why only people living on lake side are not allowed to expand their residences, although many big hotels situated on lake side are executing construction works openly.

After the Election Code of Conduct, many such illegal constructions were done as the local administration was busy in election procedure.

UMC and UIT have jointly started the movement against land encroachments and illegal construction in no construction zone.

Himmat Singh Barhat told UT that presently we have stopped the construction work and deployed guards on the site. We will take further action soon with more police personnel.
