The ‘Urdu Gate’, built in Rampur district by controversial Samajwadi party leader Azam Khan has been demolished by the administration. It is alleged that while in power, Khan had forcibly appropriated the government land and transferred it to his university in contravention to the set norms.

On Wednesday, the district administration and police team reached Azam Khan’s Mohammad Ali Jawahar University. A bulldozer was used to demolish the gate that was built on the Jauhar Ali University road. DM Anjaney Kumar Singh said that this gate was made by the CNDS from the legislative fund. No rules were followed in the construction of this gate. According to him, no permission was sought before building this gate.

DM further told that the road on which gate was built connects Rampur district with Uttarakhand. Jauhar University falls in the middle of this road. To avert the traffic congestion, the road was diverted by creating a gate in the middle of the road. As a result, the road was closed and the people plying on that road had to take a rather circuitous route to reach their destination. The diverted route went through the middle of a populated area, generating traffic issues in the region.

DM Anjaney Kumar also expressed his shock over the misuse of funds by a legislator and the complicity of government institutions such as CNDS in the rampant corruption. A committee was formed in this case, after which the gate was razed down and a letter was being written to the government to take action against the officers of the CNDS. He said that the government is also writing that the misuse of legislator funds should be recovered from these officials. About Ra 40 lakhs were spent on building the gate.
