Gujarat high court notice to politician over encroachment

AHMEDABAD: It takes filing of a PIL in Gujarat high court to remove encroachments in streets by top politicians in Porbandar. Two such PILs have been filed in the court complaining that authorities do not act against encroachment made by political heavyweights.

The HC has issued notice to Congress leader Arjun Modhwadia after one Prakash Unadkat moved the court complaining that concerned authorities did not take any action against encroachment made on a street near the politician's house.

The petitioner has sought direction to the civic authorities and collector to remove the construction allegedly put up by Modhwadia that blocks a public street.

After seeking replies from the politician, his brother and concerned authorities regarding the complaint, the court has kept further hearing on February 6.
