Residents of GH 7 Apartments in Crossings Republik, Ghaziabad, are at loggerheads with the builders.
They say that the builders are not maintaining the society as promised and have also not completed construction work. Several complaints have been sent to the Ghaziabad Development Authority (GDA) but no action has been taken so far, they add.
Taking a cue from the MS Dhoni and Amrapali episode, residents have tweeted brand ambassadors actors Rishi Kapoor and wife Neetu Singh, asking them to snap all ties with the group.
Sanjay Singh, president of Apartment Owners Association (AoA), told City Spidey that the 2,000-flat society was constructed by a consortium of the Gaursons, Supertech, Panchsheel, Assotech, Paramount, Ajnara and Mahagun builders. "The society has still not got a completion certificate from the GDA because full construction has not been done. It doesn't have a No Objection Certificate [NOC] from the fire department, and the lifts, which are in terrible shape, get stuck every now and then," he added.
General secretary of the AoA, Rohit Chaudhry, said that construction work has been pending for the past five years. "We have been forced to start a campaign on Twitter involving the UP Chief Minister Akhilesh Yadav and the local Member of Parliament General (Retd) VK Singh. We even tweeted brand ambassadors Rishi Kapoor and Neetu Singh," he said.
DP Singh, officer on special duty with the GDA, told City Spidey that they were aware of the complaints made by the residents. "Officials of the civic body will soon meet them and ensure that their problems are addressed as soon as possible," he added.
