Youth met with households who used to be an extension of the government in land clearance in the metro line 2 project (HCMC).
What the “pioneers” share is: If everyone is for themselves, what will society be like?
It’s really “heartbreaking” but you have to get over it
Going along Cach Mang Thang Tam Street (District 10) or Truong Chinh Street (Tan Binh District), the positions that have to give way to metro line 2 are already open. Newly built houses are spacious, business shops are eye-catching, attracting more customers after having to go back inside.
After 2 years of looking back, many people think that it is the result of the work of mass mobilization and volunteering, of the joint efforts of the people and local authorities in the work of site clearance.
Visit the bicycle shop at 371 Truong Chinh Street, we met Mr. Bui Van Lap (62 years old) – one of the pioneer households in accepting compensation and handing over the ground for metro line 2.
Mr. Lap said that his family has lived here for more than 20 years, and when he heard that his house had to be demolished to implement the project, he was not without concerns.
“I just bought a piece of land at house number 373 next door for 3 months, when I heard that I had to hand it over to the locality at a cheaper price than the money spent to buy it, we were heartbroken and sorry. Come to think of it, this is a national project, what will happen to society?”, Mr. Lap shared.
After handing over more than 30m2 On the premises, Mr. Lap’s family resumed the bicycle business, which had supported the family for many years. In particular, the family welcomed three more small members, who are his grandsons, born. In that joy, “sacrificing a little so that children and grandchildren can grow up living in a city with a more beautiful and modern landscape, the family also feels happy”.
Down Cach Mang Thang Tam Street (District 10), most households here are supported to buy houses for resettlement, because the remaining area after handing over the ground is less than 30m2. Mr. Tran Cong Thanh’s family (72 years old), living at 389 this street is also eligible to buy and resettle at B Nguyen Kim building (district 10).
Mr. Thanh said the family has moved to a new house since the end of 2020, being one of the earliest households to agree on the compensation plan for metro line 2 in the district. Besides, he also supported the locality in mobilizing and propagating for neighboring households to relocate together.
“Locals support people a lot from compensation and resettlement to other policies such as creating free drawings when renovating the remaining facade, supporting temporary residence during house relocation. So we are also more secure, working together with the locality to clear the ground for the common face of the city,” said Mr. Thanh.

“Good people will succeed in everything”
Not letting people “single and double losses” when their land is recovered is a mandatory requirement when implementing planning projects.
Exchange with YouthMr. Vu Quang Hung – Head of District 10’s Compensation and Site Clearance Committee – said that during the peak period in May and June 2020, under the direction of the city, District 10 has carried out the work of land acquisition and clearance. Equally, the results are positive when receiving the consensus of many people.
According to Mr. Hung, the people’s agreement to hand over the land early is very meaningful, creating a foundation for the remaining households so that they can see the meaning of land donation is to create a common face for the city for economic development. – society.
“We always remember Uncle Ho once said: Good people will succeed in anything,” said Mr. Hung.
In addition, according to Mr. Hung, some households are pioneers in relocation, handing over the premises and at the same time becoming a connecting channel, an “extension arm” of the government in the work of mass mobilization.
According to Mr. Nguyen Tan Tai – Head of the Compensation and Site Clearance Committee of Tan Binh District, the metro project No. 2 passing through the whole district has 324/356 households that are subject to relocation (accounting for nearly 60% of the compensation and site clearance area). of the whole route) and most people located in the project area passing through agreed with the compensation plan.
Talking about the consensus of the people, Vice Chairman of the People’s Committee of Tan Binh District Truong Tan Son said that most of the projects of the State and the people are very unanimous because the common spirit is that everyone wants the city to be more developed. People only have difficulty in compensation price or other issues that have not been agreed with related people in the family.
The compensation and site clearance policy of the project is applicable to the whole city, but Tan Binh district has further proposed to the city the aspirations of the people that are considered appropriate. Mr. Son gives an example of a proposal to calculate a different price for a house with two street fronts or one street frontage – one alley front because it has more advantages in terms of business.
“We also carry out the mass mobilization work like other districts (metro line 2 passes through a total of 6 districts) but we must always understand the typical difficulties and requirements of the people of our district in order to have the right proposals. then the households who take the lead in handing over the premises will create a spillover for the remaining households to follow in their footsteps,” said Mr. Son.
Expected to start construction by the end of 2022
The project to build metro line 2 with a total length of more than 11km, passing through six districts including 1, 3, 10, 12, Tan Binh and Tan Phu, with a total investment of more than 47,000 billion VND. The project implementation period is from 2021-2026, but due to many other obstacles, it is currently expected to be put into operation by 2030.
Up to now, according to Deputy Minister of Transport Le Dinh Tho, this project has handed over the ground reached 85.15% and has completed the bidding package to build office buildings and ancillary works. At the same time, it is submitting for approval the compensation cost estimate, which is expected to start construction at the end of 2022. “The Ministry of Planning and Investment is collecting opinions from units on adjusting the project implementation time for reporting. Prime Minister,” said Tho.
Chairman of Ho Chi Minh City People’s Committee Phan Van Mai also said that the city is striving to start the construction of the project’s infrastructure package by December and ask for a policy for the city to complete the approval procedures to adjust the time for the project.
District 3: find ways not to disadvantage the people
As of the second quarter of 2022, the progress of issuing compensation decisions has reached 99.67%, equivalent to 584/586 cases. In which, districts 1, 10, 12, Tan Binh and Tan Phu reached 100% and the biggest problems were mainly in District 3.
Mr. Tran Thanh Binh, vice chairman of the People’s Committee of District 3, said that there were 113 affected cases in the district, including 96 households, individuals and 17 organizations.
