Hon’ble Lt. Governor of Delhi
Raj Niwas, Delhi-54.
Sub: Request to provide Metro Connectivity and multilevel parking space for the devotees of Dargah Hazrat Nizamuddin Aulia so as to prevent traffic snarls.
Let me first congratulate you on being the Lt. Governor of Delhi. I hope that your vast bureaucratic experience and honesty will surely go a long way in making Delhi the city of our dreams. I pray for your health and well being at the Holy Shrine of Hazrat Nizamuddin Aulia and look forward to invite you on the occasion of the Urs Celebration.
May I also place before you the fact that the Dargah of Hazrat Nizamuddin Aulia is situated in the heart of Delhi with three major roads Mathura Road, Lala Lajpat Rai Marg and Lodhi Road passing around it. It also has proximity to Humayun’s Tomb, Oberoi Hotel, Jawahar lal Nehru Stadium and the prestigious Delhi Public School. Also the Hazrat Nizamuddin Railway Station is also hardly a Kilometer away. Besides the Holy Dargah the area has other shrines also.
Today the population of the area has since increased many folds besides the large number of devotees who throng to the Hazrat Nizamuddin Dargah daily. With no Metro Connectivity all the load is on vehicular traffic resulting in daily traffic chaos particularly during Urs season and other peak hours. This results in haphazard parking of devotees which often causes traffic jams resulting in inconvenience to the public at large which needs your urgent attention.
May I suggest that the Khusro Park opposite to the Baoli gate of the Dargah be conveniently used for a multilevel parking. This park previously has been narrowed twice to pave way for the broadening of the road. Presently the land is owned by the Delhi Development Authority and is gradually being encroached upon by certain notorious elements in an organised manner.
I being associated with the Holy Shrine of Hazrat Nizamuddin Aulia feel it my moral duty to pass this long pending grievance of the area. Any act of fulfillment of this request will cherish the long pending grievance of the devotees’ and the people of the locality. We are pinning our hopes on your office and high stature in the government in solving our woes..
