Very much justified, all these buildings have come up in the waterways. If this unauthorised constructions are eliminated, your flooding problem also will find a solution.

Who are these people and how come they are residing in buildings illegally erected or in unsafe and unlawful condition? From the spirit of the question, as perceived by me, probably you are referring to LIG/MIG people. Nobody is saying why the people are still continuing in the shabby conditions? Because the expenses are not at all high (almost at no cost in some places). So it is hitting them hard if some stringent measure is taken enforce discipline rule of law. There is nothing, if they can extract some advantages form the authorities. But these people are no less opportunists. They try to blackmail the authorities by their apparently difficult living conditions. In fact, in some cases the original inhabitants have long shifted to other places and they are subletting the spaces to more needy people in exchange of good money. Lot of anti-social activities are also being carried out there. There will be violent protest if the law enforcing authorities set their foot there. There will ...more

This is a very important issue that u hv brought out..... but again it reflects on the corrupt officials and the builders. The builders get approval by illegal methods and gullible ppl buy their flats....and when the govt changes and the next set of corrupt ppl come to power...they decide to call the bldgs illegal and raze them down... and in turn make money from the next set of builders...this is a vicious cycle

There is another issue here...ppl build shanty\'s illegaly and then refuse to move away... and govt provides them a roof elsewhere...they refuse to accept it because they are used to living in a place....Dharavi in mumbai is a prime example.... noone can remove it...and they refuse to go inspite of repeated demolitions.... the real estate lords also have a hand in glove with the govt....so that they can pounce on a valuable land paying pittance...

all point to corruption and lack of accountabiltiy...by the govt at all levels.

Those live in legally built houses on legally acquired land have nothing to fear. Government does not acquire anyone\'s land forcibly. It is the houses of only those who have constructed buildings on illegally acquired land and built houses on them illegally. While they were doing this they were aware of the consequences and yet they went ahead. Therefore, whatever government does is justified.

The problem is very clear , we stopped thinking any thing after the British left us with an undeserving freedom . Politicians loot this country mindlessly and incompetent people watching complacently.
