Demolition of illegal shrines in Mumbai be stopped: MLAs

Wednesday March 16, 2011 09:19:37 PM, PTI

Mumbai: MLAs cutting across party lines today demanded in Maharashtra Assembly that demolition of illegal religious structures in the city should be stopped.

Congress MLA Baba Siddique broached the subject, saying demolition of unauthorised places of worship would lead to "law and order" problems.

"The Supreme Court's directive says that such constructions should not be allowed henceforth. The Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation is wrongly citing the SC judgement to carry out the demolition," he said.

"The judgement also asks for a state policy on such constructions. It does not mention anything about existing structures," Siddique said.

MNS group leader Bala Nandgaonkar said pulling down of places of worship could lead to law and order problems.

Lashing out at functioning of Subodh Kumar, the municipal commissioner, Nandgaonkar said he did not meet elected representatives.
