INDIA Team Latestly|

Anger over the impending demolition of their homes boiled over in Haryana’s Khori village as residents and police personnel clashed on June 30. The scuffle broke after people were stopped from holding a mahapanchayat in the village’s Ambedkar Park. This, even as Haryana Chief Minister Manohar Lal Khattar announced that families whose members are voters in Haryana will be relocated to vacant flats in the district. Tension has been rife in Khori since the Supreme Court, on June 7, directed the Municipal Corporation of Faridabad (MCF) to “take all essential measures to remove encroachments on the subject forest land without any exception.” The top court gave the civic body six weeks to complete the task. The next hearing is scheduled for July 27. Thousands of residents of Khori village, many of whom have lived there for almost 20 years, say this will render them homeless, reported The Indian Express. A survey has been done which found that 3,400 people in the village are voters in Haryana; these are around 1,400 families. For these 1,400 families, we have flats ready, their rates are also prescribed. Arrangements will be made so they can get loans easily from the banks,” said Manohar Lal Khattar, Chief Minister of Haryana. Watch the video to know more.
