Readers' clicks - July 10

We talk of encraochment. What about borewells being dug on the streets and building constructed on roads like the colony developed by the honourable court. Why the authorities are sleeping over it. Is there any law where on can take over public property to their advantage. When individual's property are being taken over by the Government they are being paid compensation and litigation goes upto supreme court. Why the Government/authority is keeping mum for the taking over of government property (encroaching roads/parks). Is it legally allowed. Please let me know, I can also encroach the road by putting some pucca building.
