Administration afraid of taking corrective measures against wrong-doing by selected ones

Dear Editor,
There were news-items regarding clearing of all encroachments from Subhash Marg from Delhi Gate to GPO crossing in Delhi. But a recent shop named Shahi Zaika opened as encroachment on public-road or footpath along side erstwhile (now closed) Daryaganj Post Office stands as before. Even large scale unauthorised constructions made on two mosques at extreme ends of main Daryaganj Road on Subhash Marg remained unaffected. This is not the case only on Subhash Marg. Mosques all over the capital city by and large have made unauthorised constructions encroaching even roads and footpaths. But authorities including civic bodies and police avoid removing such illegal and unauthorised constructions.
Even Delhi High Court took harshly even ordering CBI enquiry on stalling a big Hanuman statue near Pusa Road in New Delhi because according to the court, it was a big obstruction in traffic-movement. But no such orders are ever passed in respect of mosques standing in middle of prominent roads like Janpath, Baba Kharaksingh Marg, Odeon-crossing at Connaught Place and in so many other parts of the city with even extensions further occupying road and footpath witnessed in some mosques like at Odeon crossing escaped attention of Delhi High Court. Mosque at Odeon-crossing was extended after removal of a water-kiosk there.
