Congress demo against Yamuna Pushta demolition drive

New Delhi: Dozens of Congress activists on Friday held a demonstration demanding from the Centre to put on hold its recent drive against illegal slums in the Capital. Under a Central scheme, Yamuna Pushta, the Capital's biggest slum situated on the banks of river Yamuna, is to be turned into a green area. The ambitious plan, when implemented, will be the largest relocation exercise here, involving over 1.5 million people. The project is being spearheaded by Union Tourism Minister Jagmohan.
