TIMES NEWS NETWORK
GANDHINAGAR: Minister of State for Home Haren Pandya on Wednesday informed the Assembly that the police have arrested six persons in connection with a clash between private security guards and the owner of Sanskar Bharati Vidyalay at Odhav in Ahmedabad.
The police have registered a case of abduction against the private security agency which was appointed by the Ahmedabad Urban Development Authority to stop illegal construction of three illegal shops in the government land encroached by the owner.
While making a statement in response to a calling attention motion tabled by Congress member Jasubhai Barad, the minister said that the encroachment and illegal shops were being constructed by Neetaben Goswami, a sitting Congress corporator of Ahmedabad Municipal Corporation, while a former Congress minister Madhubhai Thakore was one of the trustees in the school trust.
This statement infuriated the Congress members who alleged that the government has no right to blame the Congress, as the BJP had started regularising illegal constructions by collecting impact fees.
