Routes named after a former counselor, freedom fighter | Delhi News

New Delhi: The South Delhi Municipal Corporation on Wednesday approved a proposal to rename a road in the Punjabi market area in memory of an advisor who lost his life due to the Covid-19 pandemic.
According to the proposal of SDMC’s Street Naming and Renaming Committee, the 40-foot stretch of Punjabi Market Road, Shyam Nagar to Ravi Nagar 80-foot road at Vishnu Garden will now be named “Satpal Kharwal Pali Marg “.
According to the proposal, Kharwal’s family had urged the civic body to name a street in honor of the late councilor. The corporation has the power to decide the names of streets and small roads under its jurisdiction after eminent personalities.
As the country celebrates 75 years of independence, an intersection in the village of Naseer Pur has been named in honor of freedom fighter Choudhary Jeet Ram Girsaji who was part of the Azad Hind Fauz led by Subhash Chandra Bose . The length of the “Freedom Fighter Choudhary Jeet Ram Girsa Chowk” is 65 meters.
Likewise, a proposal was adopted to name another road in the same area as “Lieutenant Colonel Gaurav Solanki Marg”. Solanki, who was an army officer, died while fighting in Congo, South Africa, while in the United Nations Peace Force in 2019, the proposal says. The length of this road is 225 meters.
Both proposals were put forward by BJP official and former adviser Kamaljeet Sehrawat in 2019, but have been awaiting approval since then.
Meanwhile, the civic body has also named 31 other infrastructure such as parks, roads and intersections in areas of South Delhi. These include the baptism of 15 routes.
According to Mukesh Suryan, the mayor of Southern Society, this is one of the highest naming proposals adopted by the House in recent years.
