Housing and Urban Affairs Minister Hardeep Singh Puri said that the previous governments had taken extreme care in regularizing these colonies of Delhi. There is a perception among the public that there was a delay in regularizing the colonies while some political parties were in power.

Parliament on Wednesday approved the amendment bill related to regularization of unauthorized colonies in the national capital Delhi. Through this, the time limit of the related law has been extended to 31 December 2023. The Bill was first approved by the Rajya Sabha and passed in the Lok Sabha on Wednesday. The National National Capital Delhi Laws (Special Provisions) Second (Amendment) Act-2021 Bill was passed by voice after discussion in the lower house amid slogans of Congress members in the Lok Sabha on the issue of central agricultural laws.

Responding to the discussion on the bill, Housing and Urban Affairs Minister Hardeep Singh Puri said that the previous governments had taken extreme care in regularizing these colonies of Delhi. Puri said that there is a perception among the public that there was a delay in regularizing the colonies while some political parties were in power. Without naming any party, he said that no government had taken this issue seriously before. Puri said that if the corona epidemic had not occurred, the work of regularizing unauthorized colonies would have been substantially completed. Following the Minister's reply, the House approved the Bill by voice. The related law of 2011 was valid till December 31 of the previous year.

Earlier, BJP's Meenakshi Lekhi, who started the discussion on the Bill, said that the Delhi Chief Minister has announced that he wants to make Delhi Singapore by 2047. These people do similar things before the elections. But no action was taken in due time, due to which this law is being brought. He alleged that the Delhi government did not do any work to regularize unauthorized colonies.
