Tripura: In a major clean up drive, 78 illegal buildings including political party offices to be demolished

The Tripura government will raze offices of political parties built illegally on government land if they don’t move out in due time, according to reports.

The west district administration conducted a detection drive and found that 78 illegal buildings including offices of political parties and trade unions, were on government land. Claimants of these offices have been told to move out by May 6, or face razing, said district magistrate Dr Milind Ramteke. “If the offices are not removed by due time, the administration, with the help of police, security forces, and if required, paramilitary forces would demolish those offices from May 7. And we will not be responsible for the destruction of the belongings,” Dr Ramteke told reporters.

The survey to identify these illegal structures took around 25 days, he said, adding that more might be included in the list. “This is a cabinet decision. I am unaware of the rest of the state but if any illegal structure of political offices is found standing after seven days from now, we will demolish them,” he said.

Chief Minister Biplab Kumar Deb, during the assembly session in March, had said his government would not allow the construction of offices of political parties and its affiliated bodies on government land and had warned of stern action.

“If offices of any political party, including BJP, are found illegally on public land, action would be taken,” Deb said.

This came following complaints from opposition Left members over the forceful occupation of some of their offices in different parts of the state after declaration of Assembly polls results on March 3. The BJP-IPFT coalition has come to power in the state, on trouncing the 25-year-old CPI(M) led Left Front government.

Tripura government is all out to follow the Central government’s footsteps. Modi government, as soon as it came to power, in a tenacious step was seen throwing out more than 460 squatters out of their comfortable Lutyens bungalows. This figure swelled up to 1500 by the year 2016. However, there were not many media houses documenting this cleanup mission in Lutyens’ Delhi.
