Dehradun, September 14
Shopkeepers of the Indira Nagar market today burnt an effigy of vice-chairman of the Mussoorie-Dehradun Development Authority RM Sundaram for allegedly trying to displacing them.
Sanjay Sharma, patron of the Sanyukt Sangharsh Samiti, a body of shopkeepers, said they had cleared all payments due against their shops in 1999 to get a freehold status.
He said there was no question of displacing them, especially when Chief Minister Vijay Bahuguna had also given them an assurance in this regard.
Sharma said the MDDA vice-chairman was sending builders in the market to undertake some construction. "We will fight tooth and nail against any attempt to shift us to some other place," he said.
