RAM RAJYA IN CANNAUGHT PLACE
It’s a story of nexus between bureaucrats and people in power.
A common man has no say when it comes to ethics and fundamental rights to fight for. The whole story started in the name of commonwealth games by giving heritage look to entire Connaught place.
The authorities like New Delhi Municipal Corporation, New Delhi Traders Association, Local police, MTNL and electricity department who were responsible to carry on the work smoothly and in consent with each other have kept a deaf ear to the problems of an AAM ADMI.
I (Arun Bahl) law full occupant of the premises N-54 A Connaught circus, Connaught place, New delhi owning an organization under the name and style of CDS Money Exchange Bureau Pvt. Ltd has become one of the recent victim of the above nexus.
The NDMC has removed the window air conditioner from our premises as part of their plan assuring us to help plan assuring us to help us to install the split air conditioner on our roof tops on our roof tops was just a false premise.
The nexus is so strong that when we approached the NDMC officials who were responsible to give is relief they refused to help us after we chased them for a month by saying that it’s a private building and they don’t have any say in order to intervene in to the matter.
The question arises if they were not having any say or not having any authority then with whose permission they had removed the air conditioners from the premises. In fact there are numerous such cases in Connaught place especially in inner and outer circle who are sufferers due to callous attitude of so called such authorities. This resulted in to strain relations with the building occupants since in area like Connaught place no one wants to lose a single inch of his pace and hence everyone is simply refusing to cooperate.
The New Delhi Trade Association who is the governing body to look after the common interest of the traders in Connaught place is of no help to the common man who is not a registered member with their association.
The president of the association Mr. Atul Bhargav when approached with the facts regarding our sufferings, he simply refused to help by saying that we are not a member of the association. When we asked them to give us membership he showed us a path which is a long way and which might take more than six to one year to do so.
Our question is that if this association can’t come to rescue of the traders who are running their business houses for the past 15 years in Connaught place then for whose rescue they will stand and fight for. In our opinion such associations are just a hand full of people who have their own vested interest not known to common man.
If we talk about the high handedness of law and order in the city the story is again the same with the common man. After running from pillar to post we took self initiative to install the split air conditioner on our roof top and finally it was installed. As mentioned above it was opposed by the building occupants on which we took the help of local police but the local police once again showed their liability to help is who claims :WITH YOU FOR YOU- ALWAYS”. They came and removed the air conditioner and threatened that if we don’t remove them we would be booked under some case. The local police said categorically in front of the building occupants that it’s and order from the SHO. This clearly shows that mighty is the king.
To bring this matter to the top brass of Delhi police we reported the matter to the police commissioner by sending him an email which got duly registered and acknowledged by him and a copy was marked to the joint commissioner of police, New Delhi for further action.
The story did not end here. The local police did come in action and they came and collected relevant documents which itself was self explanatory that we are the lawful occupants of the premises and having a right to sunlight and fresh air. Today its been almost two months since when we complained the matter to the top brass of Delhi police but still there is no ray of hope and the building occupants/owner started threatening us for life.
The apathy is not only this we send another reminder mail to the joint commissioner of police, New Delhi range mentioning the sequence of events on the matter except that it was acknowledged and registered a new complaint number.
This is not the first time it has happened with us, eight months ago also the local police behaved in the same manner because of which we had to approach the honorable court to get the FIR registered which is still pending. In which the honorable court has already issued two bail able and two non bail able warrants against the concerned investigating officer and still no action was taken against the investigating officer.
The business in Connaught place has also come to a standstill since basic infrastructure required for running a smooth business like telephone, electricity, and parking is not available on a regular basis since the time renovation work in Connaught place has begun.
I (Arun Bahl) am not able to understand that if this can happen to an AAM ADMI like me then what else can go wrong in this city.
This clearly shows that it’s “RAM RAJYA IN CANNAUGHT PLACE” where mighty / corrupt/power full people having nexus can only survive in this city.
At the end we are approaching the print/electronic media to come to our rescue in Oder to expose this nexus which has become a nuisance not only for us but hundreds of occupants in Connaught place who are suffering similar kind if problems who are either being heard or waiting for somebody to hold the flag since they are being heard by the so called NDTA and other government agencies to get the justice.
We are attaching the relevant proof in our argument.
Documents attached are as following-
Letter the New Delhi Traders Association- Not Accepted.
Copy of the email/complaint sent to police commissioner.
Complaint registered by police commissioner.
Reminder/complaint send to joint police commissioner.
