MAYEM: Chief Minister Pramod Sawant on Wednesday warned that those new houses which are illegally built on evacuee land at Mayem would be demolished.
He was speaking at a function to distribute Sanads to locals on evacuee property at Mayem.
Assuring that Mayem locals will get their rights, benefits and schemes, Sawant, however, warned people not to sell or encroach on the land.
“No new homes should be built on Mayem Evacuee property and sold; those homes will eventually be demolished.” said Sawant.
He further said that the state government, MLA, and Collector should not be held accountable for the action.
Earlier Chief Minister said that on the request of MLA and villagers of Mayem, government had agreed to accept only one document to transfer the land ownership to the villagers, who have had their houses on evacuee property for several years.
“But now, we have seen that post Law, new houses have come up on evacuee land. We will demolish all such houses. And I request, kindly don’t approach MLA for help,” he said.
“The regularisation and issuing sanads to the locals are going on and the government has demanded only one document to transfer the land to the people,” the Chief Minister said.
“Villagers from Mayem have illegally constructed new houses in the evacuee property post legislation in 2014, all such houses will be demolished,” the CM added.
