While the entire world was celebrating International Yoga Day, over 150 residents of Golf Links, an integrated township in Ghaziabad, were protesting against the builder for scamming them into buying flats in the residential society, making false promises.
Wearing t-shirts conveying their woes, residents alleged that the builder, Landcraft developers Private limited, is trying to block the only road (21-meter wide) that links the society to Kavinagar, Ghaziabad for their own monetary and political benefits. "If the access to that road is cut off, we will be forced to travel a longer distance to make it to the master road," they added.
However, the builder said that his company is offering to build an 11-meter wide road on the other side of the society stating that the possession rights of the 21-meter wide road come under other builder named Champion Infratech. Moreover, it is not in the layout, approved by the Ghaziabad Development Authority (GDA).
People of the township accused the developer of fooling them into buying flats in the township by displaying the promised road in their sales brochure, stating the aspect of better connectivity. But now it seems to be merely a 'lip service' and nothing else.
Complaints of 'foul play' by the builder have been given to all the officials of the district, Chief Minister Helpline, Parliamentarian and MLA but the residents alleged that the administration chooses to remain a mute spectator due to the political pressure being made by the builder.
Currently, 1500 families reside in the township.
