Thiruvananthapuram: CPM veteran V.S. Achuthanandan on Wednesday urged the government to stop the move to permit unauthorised buildings and resorts by imposing a fine in the garb of permitting illegal constructions under 1,500 sq feet.

In a statement here, Mr Achuthanandan, who is Administrative Reforms Commission chairman,  said the resort mafia-bureaucrat nexus was trying to get sanction for unauthorised constructions, including resorts and housing complexes. Many of these have been constructed illegally by reclaiming wetlands, paddyfields and in violation of the Coastal Regulation Zone Act.

 

He  referred to Kapico resorts, Panavally, DLF Housing Complex, Maradu, and   unauthorised constructions at Munnar and coastal areas. The  move to legalise such unauthorised structures were creating apprehensions in the minds of people, he said.

As opposition leader he had objected to the previous UDF government’s move to grant sanction to such  buildings and resorts. “I was the one who had raised serious objections to these unauthorised structures. Under these circumstances, the government should desist from granting permission to such unauthorised constructions in the state,” he said.

 

Sources said the local self-government department was giving final touches to the proposals for granting permission to unauthorised constructions less than 1500 sq feet by levying a fine. However, what has annoyed the veteran is the move to clear buildings which are well above 1,500 sq feet which are unauthorised.
