A day after BJP Member of Parliament from Rajasthan Sukhbir Singh Jaunapuria was accused of constructing a road on National Highway Authority of India (NHAI) land near the Kherki Daula toll plaza on Sunday, the concessionaire of the Delhi-Gurgaon expressway served him an ultimatum to remove it by Wednesday, reported Hindustan Times.

Jaunapuria is a Lok Sabha MP from Tonk-Sawai Madhopur in Rajasthan and lives in Gurgaon. He is one of the five builders responsible for developing the Mayfield Garden at Sector 49/50. According to the report, Jaunapuria’s projects are located west of the expressway in Sector  84, which is about 1.5 km from the Kherki Daula toll.

Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of Millennium City Expressway Limited (MCEPL), S Raghuraman said,”We have asked the MP to dismantle the road from NHAI land by Wednesday evening. We will dismantle it otherwise on Thursday. No one can put a single stone on our land. The MP made an illegal attempt to build a road at the cost of toll without seeking prior permission from competent authority.”

As per HT report, Jaunapuria said,”We had sought verbal permission from NHAI in this regard. We are keen to bring connectivity for the locals from their areas to the expressway. The toll will soon to be shifted from here. If NHAI does not want us to make this facility, they are free to remove it, as we have no objections.”

The road was being constructed 150 meters away from the toll by the developer. The construction was stopped after the police intervened in a heated argument between MCEPL men and the developer and his men, reported HT.

T Raju, a senior executive of MCEPL said,”This is service road of the NHAI. The MCEPL has right to maintain the service road and no one else use it for personal purposes. No one can get access to NH without valid permission. In this regard, we have no information from the NHAI. The developer has committed a big mistake and it amounts to police complaint.” He added that despite their repeated attempts, the police refused to lodge an FIR.

SHO of Kherki Daula, Yashwant told HT,”MP and NHAI agreed to resolve the matter amicably. The police received a complaint from the toll operator and conducted a site inspection to resolve the matter.”

Ashok Sharma, project director, NHAI, Gurgaon said,”We inspected site the and it is clearly an illegal act. We have asked the MP to remove it at the earliest or else the concessionaire will remove it.”
