After the vehement criticism over the proposed felling of trees in Ajni Colony, the Union Minister Nitin Gadkari on Sunday stated that the plan for Inter Modal Station (IMS) would be redesigned to save Ajni Van. He informed that a new plan would be drafted which will focus on how to save as many trees as possible. Besides this, the trees that need to be removed for the project will be transplanted in the open space of the project itself. As per information, Railways will provide 200 acres of land for the IMS project.
It has been suggested to prepare a proposal for acquisition of land of Irrigation, Medical departments, Central Jail, FCI for this project. In addition, the trees that need to be shifted will be transplanted either on the project site or on the Ring road. The new plan will be ready in the next two months. The quarters where the railway employees live will also be demolished. But the railway colony will be rehabilitated. Gadkari also clarified that the British era bridge at Ajni would also be demolished.
