Bhopal (Madhya Pradesh) [India]: Expressing her zero tolerance over encroachment on public property, Minister of State for External Affairs Meenakshi Lekhi on Tuesday (April 19) said bulldozers should be used to remove the encroachments on public property.
“Wherever there is encroachment, bulldozers should be used…Whenever there is an encroachment on public property, it’s important to remove it,” Lekhi told the media persons at Bhopal in Madhya Pradesh.
Meanwhile, speaking over the violent incident in the Jahangirpuri area in Delhi on Hanuman Jayanti, she further alleged that the violence that broke out in Delhi’s Jahangirpuri on April 16 was a conspiracy by those who want to promote enmity.

She further said that the police report is awaited to see who all are responsible.
“It should be probed thoroughly…” Lekhi added.
