Gurugram district BJP leaders accused of huge corruption in allotting shops
Dy. Commissioner Nishant Yadav orders probe
Gurugram, March 12 (Delhi Crown): At least two senior BJP leaders of Gurugram district and an MCG official have been accused of being involved in huge corruption, for allegedly “allotting” Corporation shops to their tenants after “demanding” Rs 3 lakhs per shop.
The allegation has sent shock waves across the millennium city.
On the complaint of one Pravesh Makkar, a resident of Bank Colony near New Colony, Gurugram Deputy Commissioner Nishant Yadav has directed the MCG Commissioner and the Police Commissioner to probe the matter and submit a report within a week.
In his complaint, Makkar alleged that two senior district-level BJP leaders and one senior official of the MCG were “forcibly” taking Rs three lakhs from each of those who occupy the shops belonging to the Municipal Corporation of Gurugram (MCG) before delivering them the ownership certificates/documents.
Over the past few weeks, ownership of as many as 36 such files were “cleared”.
There are nearly 1000 shops belonging to the MCG. As per a policy recently announced by the Haryana Government, those who have been occupying these shops continuously for the past 20 years will be given the ownership titles.
The ownership is to be awarded to the occupants of these shops on furnishing necessary documents proving that they had occupied these shops for past two decades.
