Gurugram: Concerned over security lapse due to alleged illegal construction in the area, residents of Pink Town House, located in DLF Phase 3, on Sunday met Badshahpur MLA Rakesh Daultabad seeking his intervention in the matter.
The residents are opposing the merger of plots with their society, alleging that huge construction came up on these plots posing serious security threat to them. They are demanding a boundary wall with gate for enhancement of security in the area and also action against the illegal PGs.
They alleged that when they were installing gates to protect their colony, the DLF security personnel misbehaved and threatened the women residents of the society.
“When we were installing gate on Saturday, around 15 security personnel of DLF came and threatened us and took away the gate. The gate was being installed on the broken boundaries of the society which was there since last 25 years, we have filed police complaint against them. We have vowed to keep our fight continued till the safety and security are assured to us.” said Ritu Naresh, General Secretary of Pink Town House RWA.
They said that DLF broke the boundary of the society to give passage to recently approved plots jeopardising the security of 400 residents and encroaching on the green belt of Pink Town House.
“The owners of these plots are constructing illegal building of 6-7 storeys to run PGs and commercial activities which is in the violation of building norms. Not only that they have destroyed the greenbelt in our area,” said Naresh Kachhwah, a resident of the society.
They alleged that DLF Authority kept a blind eye to all these illegal construction and are colluding with PG owners. “This eventually will be putting burden on the existing infrastructure of the society and will compromise on the security of Pink Town House society. There have been several incidents of theft and burglary in our colony in the recent times," said Naresh.
They said that despite several complaints made to the authorities, no action was taken on the matter. There are more than 1,100 illegal PGs built in DLF Phase 3 area as surveyed by authorities but no action has been taken so far despite multiple complaints to DTCP and CM Windows.
“Several PG facilities are being constructed in the newly allotted plots adjacent to our society. Hence, residents wanted protection by installing gates,” said Jai Kumar, a resident of the society.
Meanwhile, Shekhar Basu, Maintenance Director denied any kind of confrontation between the residents and security guards.
He said, “The residents do not have any permission for the installation of gate as it blocks the entrance. We have requested them to get the permission on the same. On the illegal construction issues, the matter is already taken up with the concerned officials and they should take action on it.”
