BJP govt in MP demolishes PM-Awas Yojana house after Ram Navami violence in Khargone

One of the houses razed to the ground was built under PM Awas Yojana. The residents had been living there since before they built the house under the scheme

A house constructed under the Pradhan Mantri Awas Yojana on government land was demolished in Khargone city of Madhya Pradesh following violence on Ram Navami.
It was demolished on Monday by local authorities during a drive against `illegal' properties allegedly belonging to those involved in the stone-pelting and other forms of violence that broke out during a Ram Navami procession the day before.
Fakhroo, the house owner, told reporters that her family was living on the same plot of land in a kuccha house before they became beneficiaries of PMAY.
But when asked if the land belonged to her, she said that it was built on government land and they had been living there for years.
Government officials have claimed that they had land somewhere else and that the house was being used for other than residential purposes. As per municipal officials, the notice seeking removal of encroachment on government land was served to her in March and again on April 7 and it was executed on Monday.
In all 16 houses and 29 shops have been demolished so far.
