Bokaro: The Bokaro Steel Plant (BSL) has once again come up appealing to the squatters residing in hutments at Dundibagh area to vacate it soon or otherwise they will be removed forcibly. BSL has indicated to begin demolition drive if squatters do not leave the place. The encroached chunk of land situated adjacent to the boundary of Bokaro Airport is to be evacuated for expansion of airport. The squatters residing in those illegal hutments defecate entering inside the Airport premises which are creating a problem for Airport Authourity of India (AAI) in taking up construction activities.
This is the second time in one and half years span when BSL management is again laying effort to remove more the three hundred illegal hutments situated there. Earlier in August, 29, 2019 BSL management with the support of district administration had conducted the demolition drive and removed the hutments at the same spot. But, later BSL management failed to stop re-encroachment making squatters settled down again there.
BSL sources said an appeal has been made to the illegal occupants to leave the spot or they will be removed. “Over 90 percent of construction work for the expansion of Bokaro Airport has completed. The remaining work comprises construction of boundary wall and cutting of trees. Last week the construction of the boundary wall at Dundibagh side under Sector-12 police station has started. Shuttering of pillars is being done by the contractor,” said sources.
