GURGAON: The Toll Hatao Sangarsh Samiti is planning to move Punjab and Haryana high court seeking the removal of toll plazas from the Gurgaon section of the Delhi-Gurgaon expressway.
The Samiti members said the petition would %be filed before September 20, the next hearing date in the high court on the 32-lane toll plaza decongestion issue.
Making an announcement to this effect on Sunday, Samiti members stated that they would continue with the protest in the coming months. They demanded that 32-lane toll plaza and Kherki Daula Toll plaza should either be abolished or shifted to Rao Tula Ram Marg in Delhi and Jaipur borders.
The private concessionaire has already earned enough through toll collections, Samiti members claim. Moreover, as Attar Singh Sandhu, coordinator of the committee say, despite paying tolls, Gurgaon residents have to wait for hours in the traffic jam.
On Sunday, Samiti members conducted a havan near the 32-lane toll plaza to pay homage to the expressway accident victims. Sandhu said that 248 people have died in the last two years in these mishaps.
Earlier, a protest rally was planned to be conducted on September 9, but in the wake of the HC barring the concessionaire from collecting toll tax till September 20, the Samiti has postponed it for a later date.
