A 4-storey building collapsed in the Sabji Mandi area of the country’s capital Delhi on Monday, killing 2 children due to being buried under the debris. There are frequent reports of building collapses in Delhi during the rainy season. There are lakhs of such dilapidated buildings in the capital, not one or two. Most come under North MCD. But the Aam Aadmi Party alleges that the building was weak and the Municipal Corporation of Delhi ignored it.
There are about 1700 buildings in the whole of Delhi, which come in the dangerous category, that is, living in them is not free from danger because they can collapse at any time. But what is coming out at the moment is that due to the work going on in the basement, the whole building collapsed. But the Aam Aadmi Party alleges that the building was weak and the Municipal Corporation of Delhi ignored it. He says that our local councilor had complained about this building. But there are 11-1200 such buildings inside the MCD which can collapse at any time. MCD should have vacated them which is not being done.
Mayor of North Delhi Municipal Corporation clarified after AAP’s allegations
After the allegations of AAP, the Mayor of North Delhi Municipal Corporation clarified that a total of 8 lakh 35 thousand 474 buildings have been surveyed in North MCD alone. Of which 699 were found dangerous. North MCD has sent notices to all the 699 hazardous category buildings in August. Similarly, 444 buildings were found to be repairable. After repair, these buildings will be examined and then it will be decided whether they are habitable or not.
North MCD conducted this survey in 6 zones. According to the report, this year the most dangerous buildings are in Karol Bagh zone, whose total number is 348. After that the most dangerous buildings are in Rohini Zone, which has 142 numbers. At the same time, the number of dangerous buildings in Keshav Puram Zone 1 and 2 is 75 and the number of dangerous buildings in Civil Lines Zone is 89, while 21 buildings in City SP Zone 1 and 2 are in the dangerous category. At the same time, the number of dangerous buildings in Narela zone is 24.
Two children died due to building collapse in Sabzi Mandi area
Two children died after a building collapsed in Sabzi Mandi area. Both these children were taken to Hindurao Hospital, where they have been declared brought dead. The age of one child is 12 years, while the other is being told 7 years. Actually, this incident is from Malka Ganj area of the capital Delhi, where a car had also come in the grip of this accident. But only the builder is not responsible for this incident. There is that whole system in the courtroom, due to which a building falls into disrepair. Was there corruption mixed with brick and cement in this building? Were there stones laid in its foundation even of negligence? Every year before the monsoon, surveys of dilapidated buildings are done and notices are issued but strictness is not taken.
