Amidst reports that the Ghaziabad Nagar Nigam was preparing to demolish listed illegal houses around Arthala Lake under DM’s directions it had come to light that power transformers had been installed adjacent to the lake near these illegal settlements from which the encroachers are getting electric supply. According to a joint statement by NGT petitioners and green activists Sushil Raghav and Akash Vashishtha this is in complete violation of the NGT order. The statement read that “instead of removing illegal constructions/encroachments, in Arthala Lake, the administration is installing transformers on the lake land to provide electricity to the illegal settlements. This is against the NGT order which has directed the DM to demolish all encroachments and submit compliance report in 3 months.” reporter
