After the opposition of Masala Chowk in Gulab Bagh, a stay has been introduced until 14th November. It may be noted that Municipal Corporation and Smart City ltd. had proposed an eating joint in the city’s oxygen hub Gulab Bagh which attracted opposition from public.
The stay has been imposed after public raised their voices against disturbing the peace of the area with a food court. They said that the garden is a place where public comes for peace of mind. If a food court is opened here, it is but obvious that the place will turn into a centre of nuisance and also create noise and air pollution and even the cleanliness of this area will take a backseat.
As stated in the appeal-State government had given the responsibility of maintenance of Gulab Bagh to Municipal Corporation in January 2007 for a period of five years. The above tenure has ended and now Municipal Corporation has no right over the place. Even the smart city project has got nothing to do with Gulab Bagh. The foundation of the proposed Masala Chowk was laid by Home Minister Kataria. 16 Kiosks are also being made here. Masala Chowk must not be made in Gulab Bagh as it would destroy the peace and freshness of this place for which it is frequented by public.
