Radisson Spa & Resorts, Udaipur causing Havoc to Environment
Radisson Spa & Resorts, Udaipur is damaging environment of beautiful Udaipur and encroaching lands of locales. It is involved in vandalizing catchments area of renowned Fathesagar lake on Rani Road. They are dumping excavated waste & building materials in the natural depression area of lake. They are making the area flat land to be used for their selfish need without giving a thought to damage they are causing to ecology. They were informed time and again to stop such scrupulous activities but they are not listening to anyone as if they are the one who decides like GOD!
They are trying to escape by pushing the ball in other’s court. All they are doing is in disguise of some other local outfits and association with viz. Rockwood Hotels & Resorts. People involved in the destruction of environment are Mr. O.P.Agarwal, Mr.Somesh Agarwal, Mr. Narayan Singhal etc.
Many local resident of Udaipur have fell pray to their encroachments. One of them is Mr. Kamal Mehta S/o Madan Singh Mehta who had taken Stay order from Local Jurisdiction against them ( promoters of M/s Rockwood Hotels & Resorts Ltd and M/s Hilton Granite Pvt Ltd) who are mighty enough to condemn the court orders. All these happened under the shade & shelter of the than CM Smt. Vashundra Raje. It seems that there was some malified interest of her in the Hotel Project. Earlier a local daily newspaper ( Rajasthan Patrika Dated 16.08.08 and 18.08.08 ) had also take up the matter but no corrective action was taken by local administration against them. ( speaking itself of involvement of administration).
Though every one is shouting of Lake conservation and constituted committees for the same. I don’t see any committee working for conservation of Lakes. Are they? Where were they when a massive Spa & Resort was been erected over a period of years on the chest of lake Fatehsagar ?
It’s not that Radisson group might not be aware of the facts it is just that they preferred to keep their eye closed and let the destruction happen to environment and encroachment of other’s land. Is this the CSR policy of Radisson group?
I would request all the travel community to refrain and think twice before availing services of Radisson Spa & Resorts, Udaipur. That would be our contribution either towards or against Environment. I would love to be corrected and would heartly apologize if I am wrong at any point. I would prefer to hear from the Radisson people if there is any justification. I am also ready to move to judicial authorities but I also understand the delay involved in the procedure. I believe in power of Truth and People and therefore had come forward for the cause.
I have some video footage & snaps of the damage they are causing, which I would be happy to share with those against such destruction activity.
