Speaking to media persons on the occasion, the Mminister said that complaints were received that some persons are trying to grab the land of the lakes and canals. Such acts will not be spared and the encroachers of such lands will be thrown behind bars and will not get bail for three years. The Government, he said, will take stringent action against such elements which are coming in the way of development.
