Best Wishes to Unauthorized Land Owners

                    The Post is for A to Z April 2015 Challenge, I took up a topic : 'U' for 'Unauthorized'




“For 30 years we are dwelling here.” Mr. Ray was trying to be louder, picking up his suitcase from the ground. 

Five or six guys from the demolishing agency were accelerating their speed to finish their task before the dusk.

“We are paying the property tax. BBMP has built this road for us…..and who are you to demolish my house..???”  Mr. Ray kept giving his full effort to fight with the Government official.  

No reply from any one was making Mr. Ray down in the dumps gradually.….

“I will go to the court…..I have all property documents. If these are unauthorized land, then where you were for last 30 years……???” …Mr. Ray slowly fell down on the ground, his cry was becoming louder…..

Additional Director-General of Police was continuously giving the direction to the agency guys, without giving any heed to his situation….

Hundreds were already out on the streets, some were trying to argue with the officials and others pleading with them. Many just looked on helplessly as the bulldozers razed down their houses.

So many families left with nowhere to go, due to the demolition drive by the district administration on Thursday in Bangalore. They cleared the unauthorized occupation on the Sarakki Lake Bed recently, but where were these conscious government officials while the encroachments happened?

And why BBMP (Bruhat Bengaluru Mahanagara Palike) constructed a road for these people on the lake bed without looking at the authorized and unauthorized papers? Do we have any answer…? I doubt…

No comments on these authorized and unauthorized issues right now, but as human being, I wish good life for all the homeless now.
