The News makes for a bizarre, rather startling, reading to every right- thinking citizen, who have been residents for years, of the localities under attack. Ostensibly, the exhibited obstinacy goes to offend, verging on ‘criminality’, even the basic human faculty of common sense, not to talk of legal sense .
For what is known, anyone will be right in offering individual or collective comments, on inter alia the following natural premises :-
The properties such as apartment buildings had been in existence for years;
The plans for constructions were all duly approved, so also completed, and occupied with the tacit, or implicit, concurrence of the empowered local authorities , but not behind their backs; and
Taxes namely, Property tax and other related levies, have been charged and being collected all these years without the least whisper.
If so, BMRC in sticking to its stance, and spiking, in a cavalier fashion, that too outright, the seemingly genuine and lawful pleas of the aggrieved property owners, whatsoever be the justification or reasons put forth or otherwise by BMRC, can only be regarded to bear out its single and narrow mind- track.
Earlier the sense of civilisation and righteousness comes to prevail, the better!
