Many residents were left stumped today when passed by Abul Fazal Enclave market. They saw a signboard on the left hand a few meters from the fruit market and on it was written Okhla Vihar Metro.
“Okhla Vihar Metro in Abul Fazal Enclave, really shocking. Though many people were happy and looked at it as a sign that metro will get operational in a few days time, residents don’t know what is happening,” said a resident.
When OT.COM tried to find out from an official at the metro that how come it has been named Okhla Vihar, he too appeared stumped. It is Okhla Vihar, he claimed in astonishment. But when pointed out that it is Abul Fazla Enclave and hence it should be named after the locality, he said he had no idea.
It is understood that in a few hours time, the police station is to be inaugurated. An official on the spot said the Delhi Police Commissioner is coming to cut the ribbon at 4 pm and hence the preparations are going on in full swing.
This could be something new for several Okhla residents, but a local NGO had raised the issue with authorities with little success.
